|People, places, and other things I enjoy.
|Websites for Poetry
|Clitorature - A tumblr-based zine for "Original poetry, short prose, humor and art with an erotic or intellectual theme."
The Idiom - Support a local rag! The Idiom is a self-published/printed, free, NJ-based journal featuring local poets with amazing talent. You can also
buy their first and second anthologies by going here and here (respectively) to be all philanthropic.
Tony Gruenewald - One of the NJ poets who taught my poetry how to love and laugh.
Jamie Kilstein - A poet on a mission to edify/enlighten the non-liberal populous as to the self-defeating nature of right-wing thought, this stand-up
comic-turned-poet blends political satire, humour, and a tongue that can pierce steel, hearts, and minds.
The Loser Slam Team - A group of very talented poets near the Jersey shore. Some of my favourite members include (in no particular order) Nicole
Homer, Chad Anderson, Chris Rockwell, and Connor Dooley. All are adept at slinging words in manners most enthralling and insightful.
Poems-within-poems are a speciality of this group.
Poetry - Monthly literary publication that has published poems from past, present, and future greats.
Poets.org - A resource for bibliographic information about past and contemporary poets.
Seventeen Syllables of Loathing - A blog dedicated to venting about everyday idiocies via haiku and senryu.
Shot Glass Journal - An online journal, published by Muse Pie Press, dedicated to short poetry (10 lines or less each).
J Simone - Among other titles, she was host of the Soul Cypher Poetry Slam, where I first heard her tongue-in-cheek and not-so-tongue-in-cheek
poems on everything defying popular thought. As brilliant as her words are sexy!
Tuck Magazine - A zine updated monthly with interviews, poetry, reviews, and fiction.
Walking English - A group of highly talented poets from the NJ shore area.
Z-composition - A bi-monthly literary e-zine and print anthology that publishes "obscure mischief, necro-style, organic phenomenon, decay and
fragmentation of reanimation, sci-fi, dream like, fantasy, horror, thriller, dark, comedy/humorous" content.
