Natalie Lyalin and I work on a Poetry Journal called GlitterPony. Today we put out the third episode of GlitterPony. It’s been a lot of work both on the design end and on the editorial end, but it is well worth it.
We are both pretty dang excited about the poems and the poets.
If you are at all interested in what contemporary poetry looks like you might want to head over. I know a lot of people still think poetry is either Robert Frost, slam poetry, or people with berets snapping their fingers, but it isn’t.
There are people doing all sorts of interesting things. I’m not about to go saying that I know what is best, but I know what I like. I think that people today would appreciate poetry more if they saw that people are still doing exciting things with writing— that is to say we aren’t all lame-o’s like Billy Collins.
