Bloghopping & Remembering

Saw a poem by Dorianne Laux that speaks to today's remembrance of 9/11. It's on a new poetry blog I just found, Joshua Robbins' Little Epic Against Oblivion. Joshua teaches at the University of Tennessee and is the poetry editor for their print annual Grist.

Fringe has a new fall issue up. "The noun that verbs your world" continues to publish work that sizzles. I love the prose poem in this issue, "Things I Thought I'd Never Say," by Kat Gonso, just hilarious.

Caketrain's chapbook contest is still open, accepting submissions for 2010 publication until October 1.

Oh, yes, I'm all about the contests now. And the contradictions.
