Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

‘Tis Tally Time!

A new batch of updates has been posted over on the Poetry Has Value site. Go ahead and read the contributing bloggers’ updates on submissions—and more—from each poet’s practice. (As always, I recommend that you read all of the posts, but if you’re especially eager to read mine, you’ll find it right here.

The Gang’s All Back

My Jewish-text-study-and-writing-group reunited last evening after too many weeks in which holiday observances, travel schedules, and life got in the way of our gatherings. I am so glad that we have reconvened. I missed everyone–and I missed the inspiration of our work together. (I drafted a new poem last night that I’m excited to keep working on–and it has been too long since I was able to say that!)

Newsletter Alerts

And it’s that time again. Time for me to remind you about some new newsletter issues. The latest edition of The Practicing Writer went out to subscribers this morning. And the Fig Tree Books newsletter was distributed yesterday. (It happens to include a number of suggestions for ways to celebrate Jewish Book Month, which we’re in right now.)

I’m always glad to see new subscribers, for either/both of the newsletters that I work on. (Hint, hint!)

    I’m a little confused by your Poetry Has Value post. You write that your submission to the Anna Rosenberg contest was rejected. Yet I think this past Monday I got an email that the deadline is mid-January. Can you kindly clarify?

      You’d better check with the contest administrator, Barbara. All I can tell you is that the entries were rejected. Many thanks.
