Hey there few, but loyal, Poetry Challenge challenge followers. We are back from blog hiatus to announce some exciting going-ons. Part of the reason for delay on the next poetry challenge is that Christine was given the opportunity to teach a Creative Writing Course for the permanent-housing-challenged in Dallas. Works from this interesting and talented crowd of writers will definitely be posted from time to time. Check out the poster!
Also, exciting news for Al who has signed to an independent record label in Ontario!! And since most of Al’s writing becomes transformed into song form, check out his stuff. “Sparks in the Grass”…#5 on the sampler
For one of his most recent artworks, Sam Winston cut every word from a copy of Shakespeare’s ‘Romeo and Juliet’ and separated them into three categories: passion, rage, and indifference. He then cut each letter individually and worked them into patterns. The collage below is ‘Passion’.
POST OF SHAME.
Mike Myers Beat Poem “Woman”
Christine: I’m reading The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath
Dave: Who is Sylvia Plath?
Christine: She is a well known confessional poet who killed herself.
Dave: How did she do it?
Christine: She stuck her head in the oven.
Dave: [After long pause] That seems like a really painful and inefficient way to off yourself.
Christine: [Sigh] Yep…just stuck her head in the oven and cooked herself like a turkey…even made sure she basted herself every thirty minutes.
Dave: [Confused Frown]
Thank you so much tumblr friend :) Kind, kinds words. And it would be wrong of us if we didn’t point out how awesome your tumblr is as well. It puts out a such a positive message about faith, love and being true to yourself and we REALLY dig it!
