Hey all poetry zine writers and readers!
I am curious about what poetry projects folks are working on these days?
I am writing poems for a theme booklet. I am going to call it Poems of the Year, and it will include one never before published poem for each month of the year. My goal is to have it ready by the first week in November and push it as a winter holiday/new year gift. I am almost done, but still need a poem for December and short poems for June and July (to go with short poems that I already have for those two months).
December is giving me problems. I don't really have strong feelings about that month (like I do for April and October), and I need to write the poem before I'm living the things about the month that might inspire me (like the ferocious wind did in May). I'm trying to think of Decembers past...I feel like December needs a really really strong poem, because that is the poem people will be left with after reading the whole booklet. The last line needs to be a real wower. Sigh!
I should start lining up poetry reading gigs for this new project now.
