Jay and I met for several hours yesterday and started reviewing some of the hundreds of poems we have received for Barn Owl Review so far. We'll be doing rolling considerations/acceptances, but couldn't help ourselves and had to snatch a few poems right away. We are so impressed with the quality of the subs we've been receiving, and I'm especially stoked because there are so many writers out there who I don't know, but love instantly.
I am really enjoying teaching Modern American Poetry this summer. It's a class I can walk into sans lesson plan and just lay it down. Yesterday I read "Prufrock" aloud in its entirety and it was the most fun I have had in months. I guess that says a lot about me, eh?
