More Stuff

Like this poem of mine on VQR Online. Beautiful beautiful journal.

Also . . . weird to have this sudden explosion of poems on the web.

I'm almost over the cold. Pho is the most delightful stuff for colds.

School starts next week. I've been working on syllabi. Two fun classes: 1) Forms of Verse, 2) Collaborative Poetry.

I'm still finalizing which forms to use. The usual suspects like sonnets, villanelles, and sestinas will be there, but I want a few surprises.

For the Collaborative Poetry class, I'll be using Saints of Hysteria. Should be quite fun. Lord knows how I'll run a workshop, though.

I want to see Juno.

Congrats on the flurry of web activity, Oliver! I've enjoyed discovering your work. The courses you're putting together sound like great fun and your note inspires me to get busy on my own syllabus.
