Poetic Verbs, May 8-May 14

This week, to honor and promote my writing practice, I...

* looked up the submission guidelines for Minnesota Women's Press
* began working on an online resume (which I will publish once it's finished)
* wrote a haiku and a Poetry Thursday poem
* bought and began reading a book on my favorite poetry movement, the Beats
* bought a mic and recorded my PT poem
* started a submission tracking sheet for submissions
* submitted poems to a contest sponsored by MNArtists, an arts organization

Finals are coming up, both in my work life and my own student life, so I anticipate an unpoetical week of finals grading and completing. But I'll be thinking about poems and reading Natasha Trethewey's book, since the Poetry Book Club is coming up next Monday.

I love visiting your site because I learn so much from you.

Can't wait to start book club, although I anticipate a slow start for the same reasons as you, I'm finishing school...June 4th. I'm still waiting on my book, but I can keep my toe in the door.

Thanks for visiting me! It's never too late. Can't wait to see what you've got for poetry thursday. Mine might be ready.
