A little banana bread for your Monday morning.
Please help me welcome Jennifer Sullivan (and her adorable pup) and Jason Venner (and his mohawk) to the blogosphere. Welcome to the neighborhood! Now go do your homework! Just kidding.
Since Jen and Jay both write series of poems focused on a subject or persona, here's a question for those of you who do the same. How do you handle sending out poems that are obviously part of a series? Do you mix in a few non-series poems, or go whole-hog?
I'm super stoked that a poem from my series, "Saint Monica Stays the Course," will be appearing in an upcoming issue of Ninth Letter. Yay! I tend to put a few Monicas in with some non-Monicas, with a note about the series in my cover letter. What has worked for you?
