Year of Poetry Update - Week 50

I would like to say that in the final week of school that I managed to find some extra hours to devote to the poetry page but that would be a lie - though looking at the stats I did mange fractionally more than last week. 

End of year parties involving a "Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer" mankini intervened as well a a substantial bar tab.

I did mange to collect a rejection from a major Australian poetry publisher and sent off two more poems for consideration. There's a few other poems out in circulation but I'd say that its pretty much a wrap for The Year of Poetry publication wise.

A friend of also announced the release of a pamphlet collection and if your are keen to support an emerging poet and good photographer please make your way to the Ginninderra Press website and check out Immediate Reactions by Martin Christmas.

The Writing...

Finished off revising another draft and began a "Misty Cow" poem for a poet friend - here's hoping I get it done for Christmas.

The Study...

Managed about 30 minutes noting Frances Mayes' ideas on free verse.

Close Reading...

of beer labels occurred but not much else.
