April is not the cruelest month, but rather a nice one. This blue lobster looks pretty cool, eh? He's hanging out on my blog to celebrate my three poems in the Spring 2008 issue of Arsenic Lobster! Check 'em out, if you please!
A few more April bits are forthcoming, including two poems in [ECTOPLASMIC NECROPOLIS]...a delicious multi-writer project from Blood Pudding Press! Check out the lineup:
Aimee DeLong, Shane Allison, Eddie Watkins, Nava Fader, Rebecca Loudon, Candace Turlington, Brian Foley, Misti Rainwater-Lites, Ken Pobo, Suzanne Grazyna, Andrew Lundwall, Adam Fieled, J.R. Pearson, John Moore Williams, murmurists, Rachel Lisi, Brooklyn Copeland, Susan Slaviero, AnnMarie Eldon, Melissa Severin, John Rocco, Nicole Cartwright Denison, Donora Hillard, Jayne Pupek, Sean Kilpatrick, Sharon Zetter, Jeff Roberts, Daniela Olszewska, Juliet Cook, and Rachel Kendall.
A very cool collection of writers...I'm rather awed to be in such fine company!
This writing one poem a day biz is tiring. Admittedly, some of them really suck rocks...however, I figure I can revise a sucky poem, whereas a blank page is rather useless.
I am also taking a brief respite from sending out submissions to focus on writing. And reading subs for blossombones...I'm trying to make some decisions, which is always difficult, when people send such fine poesy!
Susan Slaviero lives on the cusp of a hellmouth, where she vanquishes evil with poetry and cupcakes. She hopes to someday land a job as either a dog whisperer or a telephone psychic. In the meantime, she writes. She has a fondness for esoterica.
