Poetic Asides Round Up Request

Earlier this morning, I had a "duh!" moment related to the Poetic Asides community. I hope you can help me out.

As many of you know, the Poetic Asides readership and community brings together a wide range of poets at various points in their writing time lines. Some have been writing for years (if not decades); others started writing poetry because of poetry challenges on this site; and some have contacted me privately to let me know that they lurk in the shadows. All are welcome, but I just realized that I've been missing an opportunity to help our community help each other.

Many Poetic Asides readers have published poetry collections. Some put on poetry events. Others offer poetry publication opportunities. And there are other ways that the poets on PA Street are helping make the world a more poetic place.

If you are one such Poetic Asides reader, I want to hear from you. Send me an e-mail (robert.brewer@fwmedia.com) with the subject line: Poetic Asides Round Up

If you have poetry collections available, let me know. If you'll be leading an upcoming poetry event, let me know (including any details on the event). If you'll just be attending an upcoming poetry event, let me know (again, any details would be nice). If you offer poetry publication opportunities, share that. In fact, if you have any good poetic news, please share it with me.

I'm going to attempt to have semi-regular Poetic Asides Round Up posts that help us keep up with each other and hopefully provide poetic opportunities that we might not catch on our own.

NOTE: If you've contacted me about something in the past, please send information again using the subject line and e-mail address above. That way I don't miss something obvious in my Round Up posts.

Thank you so much!
