Submissions are up at The Poetry Locksmith, which is COOL. We are blessed that many new poets have found us at Eye On Life, enriching our pages with their work. I (and we) are grateful. Please stop by and enjoy the voices of Nina Longfield, M. Drew Williams, Valentina Cano and many others.
As I mentioned I have started posting a little of my own work at The Poetry Locksmith, too. For years I felt it was a conflict of interest, but since we changed the design of the whole site a couple of years ago, and because I do not place ads on other poets’ poems, I have had no place to put ads on the Poetry Unlocked pages. Now I can put ads on my own work and feel that I have not done anyone wrong by marring their work with advertising – only mine. At the same time it gives me a creative outlet. It’s a win-win situation.
Musically things are often quiet in the summer because band members are on vacation, but now things are beginning to flow again. Gigs are scheduled for Unclaimed Freight and Too Klez for Comfort already, and I hope to schedule a performance of my own work soon. I will be sessioning with a brand new group of musicians at the end of August to see where we can go. If good recordings result I will be sure to cue you in.
My latest and greatest music can always be found at Reverbnation, a site that offers promotion services for musicians and composers like me 🙂 I have a few tunes there for your listening pleasure.
That about sums up my creative activity for now. Hope you all are having as much fun as I am.
