Newly Published Poem
I’m happy to present a poem, “A Walker in the Post-Blizzard City,” that’s now up in The Wild Word‘s “Winter”-themed issue.
Yes, this is one of the newly accepted poems I alluded to last week. (And yes, the title alludes to Alfred Kazin’s famous A Walker in the City.)
More interesting, on the level of craft, is that I first drafted this poem about a year ago in response to a prompt in Martha Silano and Kelli Agodon’s The Daily Poet: Day-by-Day Prompts for Your Writing Practice. (It was the January 11 prompt, “Surprise City.”) I continue to recommend this craft book highly!
Newly Re-published Poem
And I’m grateful that a prose poem I wrote many years ago, “Diaspora,” has been chosen for inclusion in Lagan Online‘s e-booklet “How Can Life Go On? Poems and Prose for Holocaust Memorial Day 2017.” (Holocaust Memorial Day is observed on January 27.)
You can download the e-booklet free of charge at the website.
So here’s something new: I’ve finally entered the world of Facebook ads. I haven’t done so for myself—I’ve done so in my role as Media Editor for Fig Tree Books.
To prepare for the momentous act of boosting a post for the first time, I read up on Facebook advertising and related best practices. But I’m still learning! I’d love to hear any specific advice and/or see links to resources that you’ve found especially helpful in your own work with Facebook ads. Thank you!
