Soft Launch

 

I am now the owner of danielromo.net. I’ll use that as my professional 😉 writing website. Still have lots to do there, but I’ll also still use this. Okay? Okay. Now head over to danielromo.net. That’s danielromo.net.

Vote for Romo?

 

Voting is open for the Bartleby Snopes short story of the month. Feel free to vote for my story “Shit,” or vote for any other story. Here is my story. Here is where you can vote. If elected, I’ll do my best to outlaw dullpoetryvoices and list poems.

Typical Tuesday

In “honor” of James Franco signing a book deal with Graywolf Press, I give you… my Creative Writing class Christmas Tree (decorated days before the big announcement)

 

 

Oh Christmas JamesFranco Tree, Oh Christmas JamesFranco Tree

 

The Star of our tree

The Star of our tree

via Wikipedia – 1600-1650 in Fashion

 

In the early decades of the century, a trend among poets and artists to adopt a fashionable pose of melancholia is reflected in fashion, where the characteristic touches are dark colours, open collars, unbuttoned robes or doublets, and a generally disheveled appearance, accompanied in portraits by world-weary poses and sad expressions.

Amigos

 

decomP gave my buddy John F. Buckley and Martin Ott a great review of their book, Poets Guide to America. Geographical poetic tag-team writing at it’s finest. The review is here. The book can be purchased here.

 

Michael J. Martin has some poems at the Bakery that deserve to be read. His bio is especially noteworthy, not for what’s there, but for what isn’t there. Trust me. He also runs brain paper press. It’s in its infancy, but it will be something to watch. Read MJM’s poems here. Keep track of brain paper press here.

**** budget cuts!

 

I recently registered at donors.org. It’s a fantastic site that helps teachers. My students could use some help, but our district has no money and is cutting everywhere. We need an inexpensive laptop. Here is my page. If anyone donates between now and a week from now, the site matches the donation! Enter the code “INSPIRE.” If you could help, we will be most appreciative.

Thanks,
Mr. Romo
