Received my latest journals of science fiction poetry, Star*Line and Dwarf Stars. I have enjoyed my membership in the Science Fiction Poetry Association and will renew soon.
Denise Dumars talks about Eliza Griswold's Afghan Women poetry piece that was recently featured in The Poetry Foundation podcast and the June 2013 issue of Poetry magazine.
Speaking of Poetry magazine, I back-ordered the February 2013 issue for its feature on Joan Mitchell. I always enjoy my individual copies of this infamous journal but I've never been able to bring myself to purchase a subscription. I'm not sure why that is. Do I associate this journal too much with being the gatekeeper of the canon? APR is kind of a gatekeeper too and yet I subscribe to that.
But there I'm swayed by APR's on-the-ground style newspaper format. I'm so transparent. Anyway, I really enjoyed Poetry's notebook commentary by W.S. Di Piero.
