A Poem a Day READY!

This zine that is ready is the culmination of my writing for the A Poem a Day exercise. It's not the big compilation zine containing work by many poets. This one is just me.

I am asking $2 or cool trade for it. It has over twenty new poems, all by me. It's 22 pages, 8 and 1/2 by 5 and 1/2.

I think it's great! I hope other people will think so too.

To order it, write to me at

Dear Poetry Zinesters -
Whip is compiling their new issue based on 'living in places' and Whip would love to have your work to feature!
As long as the theme of the writing is boadly (very braodly) living somewhere then you should submit something! Whip is primarily looking for off-beat, unusual writing that could be word-art, poems made from the notes on a piano, haiku, super-ultra-traditional structured poems, sonnets, poems in the street, cut-up poetry... whatever.
Please send any and all submissions to whipmagazine -at- yahoo -dot- -co- -dot- -uk- before valentines day.
Thank you,

Have you heard about Poetry Out Loud?

It's a national contest where high school students recite "great" poems from memory. I was a judge yesterday at my area's regional competition. It was a lot of fun, and folks totally appreciated me taking my time to judge.

I'm trying to spread the word so folks can get involved locally.

You can read more about it here http://www.poetryoutloud.org/

i have 2 zines with poetry in them. one's a collaboration with other folks and art, and the other's my own art with haiku. one of these days i'll get around to doing a proper full length zine with fantabulous illustrations.
one's called drawings and haiku, and the other is eve art interactions.

I am writing an article about We Make Zines for the upcoming issue of Zine World. I want to ask some folks some questions. If anyone in this group wants to participate, message me and I'll send the questions to you. Thanks!

I've been host and co-host before (for both individual's readings and group readings and informal workshops). And I've been the feature before, and simply been to open mics before. Most of the time it's not really related to zines as much as poetry chapbooks and books or simply sharing poetry.

I had a really great poetry reading last Friday night. A couple dozen people were there, mostly friends, it's true, but still an excellent turnout. Folks were really into my poems and I left them wanting more (to brag on myself a little). I sold many issues of my zines and had a really good time.

Do other folks give readings? Do folks find readings a helpful way to get their zines out into the world?

If folks who have not done readings are interested in doing so, I would be so happy to share what's worked for me as far as making it happen.
