Check out the lineup for the new issue of The Eleventh Muse! What a treat to be sharing a cover with Deborah Ager, Jeannine Hall Gailey, Brandi Homan, and so many outstanding other folks. I haven't been this geeked about a publication in a long time.
Au sujet de geekdom, I've had two bits of good professional news lately, and I am all a-flutter and not griping about how I spent the weekend grading midterms and essays. Said tidbits are not really po-related so I'm not sure when I'll share them here, but let's just say that there's a PLAQUE involved with one of them (and not the dental variety either). It was a super productive weekend even though I didn't get my mountain of ironing done. I succumbed to the temptation of jammies, a big bowl of berry jello w/cool whip, and the Sopranos instead.
On a separate note, why oh why do anthologies do such a bad job of "selecting" Allen Ginsberg poems? I mean, the book I'm using doesn't have "Sunflower Sutra" for shite's sake, and that's my favorite one. After I finish editing, publishing, and basking in the copious royalties of my currently-unstarted Poetry of the Body anthology I will have to address this problem (unless someone offers me jello instead).
