official announcement to follow with the launch of edition 7, but thought i share this news right away:
If you are interested in Language and Place, you are invited to join Edition #8 of the Language/Place Blog Carnival. It will be hosted by poet & author Walter Bjorkman. Born in Brooklyn, Walter recently moved into the Pennsylvania countryside and blogs at Qwik-Bake Synthetics. The suggested (but not mandatory) theme for edition 8 is “The poetry of place”. The edition is planned for late July 2011. Submissions are open July 1 – 20. More about the blog carnival, here: language place blog carnival: about + links.
call from Found Poetry Review
The new literary online magazine The Found Poetry Review, edited by Jenni B. Baker, is currently looking for submissions of found poetry for the first issue. They also can be found at twitter, here a quote re: submissions: "Still time to send in your found poetry for consideration for our debut issue. We look forward to your submissions! (deadline: June 30)" "We've received a lot of great poetry submissions -- could use some photos too!"
TNBBC / To the River
The TNBBC book blog is featuring Artistically Declined Press this week - check out their blog, they have interesting reviews, and indie press features. AND they have a special giveaway: Rose Hunter’s poetry collection "to the river".
And an extra-link, to bring this post to a point of full-circle-closure: “to the river” is about passing through and staying in places - there is an author talk with Rose up in the blueprint book blog - and from themes, this now also connects to language/place: Daily s-Press author talk on poetry, travel, languages.
