Below the list of names is a list of archives for the previous years' exhibitions. I wrote the introduction for 2006 and have poems in the first year.
I also have online poems in the first issue of The Country Mouse.
"I won 3rd place in a 60s erotica short story contest and my story can be found here:
It is a brief visit back to the folks in my novel We are Billion-Year-Old Carbon and Mr. Brautigan makes a brief appearance."
CONGRATULATIONS, COREY. I'LL TAKE A LOOK AT THAT. UMMM, I LIKE EROTICA.
JOYCE, I WILL TAKE A LOOK AT YOUR LINKS, ALSO. THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS.
Now I gotta find some contemporary poets that are good starts for them to check out.
I heard the front door close
and from my window saw
my father cross the moonlit lawn
and start up the orchard road.
Then I was with him,
my mittened hand in his,
and Peter, my brother, his dead son,
holding his other hand.
The way the three of us walked
was a kind of steady weeping.
I have catalogs from Copper Canyon Press, and found this in the few minutes I looked.
There surely are more, but this can work with youngsters I think. Esta1923
Before you were born, I hung it on a nail
on the blue wall above the waiting crib
like a good-luck charm to watch over you.
Your mother had me take it down.
She worried a mask would frighten you--
the empty face behind the metal cage.
But it's a mask from my youth,
the metal rusted, the straps cracked,
the leather padding soft as butter.
I've kept it, knowing one day
you will pull it on and it will shield you--
Kneeling in the red dirt, waiting
for the pitches thrown at you.
(from Esta 1923.... good luck with project!)
Here is a poem by Gwendolyn Brooks that might appeal to them:
We Real Cool
we real cool.
we left school.
we lurk late.
we strike straight.
we sing sin.
we thin gin.
we jazz june.
we die soon.
In her memoir, Truth & Beauty, Ann Patchett tells about being awarded the Provincetown fellowship & how happy she was, so you are now part of a select & talented few. Hope you have time to enjoy the Beach!
After three (+) years of writing, I'm glad to have SO DARK THE NIGHT out there and available for folks to read. So far a couple of thousand visitors have popped by in less than a month so word is definitely spreading.
But all the promo and plugging I've been doing has been, I admit, a bit wearing. I need to get on to my next project, which is exactly what I hope to be doing in the next week-ten days...
Having to turn on and off those creative juices, forced to KEEP them off while we expend energies on less satisfying aspects of our vocation. I wouldn't mind if promotion meant giving readings but what I'm enduring is flitting about cyberspace, looking for any sites devoted to reviewing or promoting science fiction, horror, mystery, occult and/or the supernatural.
The oddest thing is, despite my efforts, the person steering many readers my way belongs to a site that celebrates erotic fiction, folks I hadn't even contacted during my version of a media blitz. They just heard about the novel, checked it out and loved it. Now they're telling everyone they know to check out SO DARK THE NIGHT.
I'm not complaining but it's...odd...
Sex & death.
The best sources of inspiration a creative artist could ask for.
D. M., do you have a Facebook account? I import blog entries to my Facebook account. Facebook is a very good networking tool. I plan to try to continue making blog entries from Provincetown.
If you have a Facebook account, Friend me. I use my real name: Theresa Aleshire Williams
