Even with my hermetic practices and no-sending-stuff-out rules I get invited to do all sorts of things and I never can do them, either because of time or money (it’s expensive to travel!) or simply because I haven’t written any poetry in months and months. If I had more time to spend on poetry, I would make the take-home chaps and then refocus my energy on my own work. I don’t have the resources for all the stuff I’m supposed to be doing. Augh! I think I’m going to have to start saying No to everything for awhile.
Things I will definitely do: Take-Home, 4SQ, the Anthology, derek’s foundpo, Adam and Matt’s thing, Kevin’s thing.
I have a new policy on poetry readings. I won’t be doing any poetry readings outside a 3 hrs’ driving radius of wherever I am. I can’t afford it. I can’t be a publisher and still have time to write poems and have money to fund reading adventures. I don’t have money. I don’t have time. I don’t have any poetry! Augh!
That said, if you are anywhere near Baltimore this weekend, this looks promising:
