Torn Tongue: Nouns Beginning with "I"
Poetry Fishbowl Report for Tuesday, April 5
Where Ideas Come From
The next Poetry Fishbowl will be Tuesday, May 3 with a theme of "folk tales." I'm asking for new theme ideas for this project. Please leave yours in a comment to that post. There will be a poll later to choose the most popular ones for scheduling into the fishbowl lineup.
The poll about line numbers shows that most people prefer to have the line numbers removed. There were also several thoughtful suggestions about modifying the numbers to be less obtrusive, but I don't think any of those would be both effective and achievable with my level of computer skills, alas. It's simpler just to leave out the line numbers when I post epic poems.
The epic poems "The Truth in the Tower" (a Fiorenza poem) and " Paper, Scissors, Stone" (a Monster House poem) have completed microfunding and are fully visible online. "A Periodic Table of Elementals" is ahead of production.
