I'm pleased to announce that my poem "the leaf whisperer" has been accepted for reprint in the 2009 Dwarf Stars Award Anthology. This poem originally appeared in Doorways #5 Winter/Spring 2008. The Dwarf Stars Award recognizes excellence in short (1-10 lines) speculative poems.
A friend tipped me to the KickStarter website. It's billed as "a funding platform for artists, designers, filmmakers, musicians, journalists, inventors, explorers..." I'm particularly intrigued by the journalist angle, in a world where fact-checking and reporting are fast evaporating under the ruthless sun of corporate surveillance. I like the idea of inviting the world at large to buy you a muck-rake!
