So I thought I didn’t have anything to share today, but as I was cleaning out my e-mail, I found the following message from Gretl van der Merwe, who’s apparently starting up a bimonthly magazine called Melisma.
Here’s the official notice:
TheVerbForI will be publishing the first issue of “melisma,” it’s bimonthly magazine on the 1st of October 2008. We are inviting poets to submit works on the following theme: “The Immediate.”
