Topic My poem "The Conning Of America" published in multiple charity anthologies...
Posted 03 Mar 2017 11:05

Managed to get my poem "The Conning Of America" published in multiple charity anthologies, and I believe this is the first one released as of today. It's quite a big project with 19 editors and a total of 351 poets, and note that 50% of all net sales receipts donated to Planned Parenthood. Here's an interview with two of the editors which tells the story behind it...

Meet the Press: Dante Di Stefano in Conversation with Michael Boughn and Kent Johnson, editors of Dispatches from the Poetry Wars and its new book series, Dispatches Editions

And here's the listing of all the poets and editors involved on the Spuyten Duyvil website...

Dispatches Editions - Resist Much / Obey Little - Inaugural Poems to the Resistance
http://www.spuytenduyvil.net/resist-much-obey-little.html

And it is available on Amazon as well for anyone interested...

https://www.amazon.com/dp/1944682325/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1488566165&sr=1-1

I'll add the other anthologies that my poem is included in to this thread as they're released. There were a number of charity sub calls in response to the election, and I believe it's included in at least three...though frankly it's hard for me to keep track of these things myself...

Topic We're thinking of you, Carl (fuzzy1954)!
Posted 18 Dec 2016 12:38

Hey Carl...I hope whatever is ailing you at the moment, you are able to recover from. It might not be any consolation, but I have health problems myself that I will never fully recover from. I'm on Ramipril for a heart condition...my heart only functions at about 30% (50% is the norm btw), and I'm on Flomax for enlarged prostate the last few months. So I'm a bit of a mess myself the last few years...this getting old crap is not for the faint of heart, no pun intended...

Anyway, hope you recover in time to celebrate the holidays and be with the ones you love...

Cheers,
Alan.
