First off, here's a great story about the latest Paris Hilton poetry scandal. I'd try describing "Paris Hilton: poetry plagiarizer?," an Op-Ed piece by Joel Stein for the Los Angeles Times, but there's no way I could do it justice. You just need to go read it for yourself.
Next, you have until October 31 to apply for the Minnesota state poet laureate position. Minnesota residents only. (And no, I don't think it's possible to become a Minnesota resident in the next 30 days, but I could be wrong about that.)
Finally, there's a nice post about the English grad program at the University of Cincinnati. As a former undergrad, I'm not one to go on and on about my experiences as a Bearcat, but I do feel it was a great program with a very helpful staff that pulls no punches in trying to deliver a top notch creative writing and English literature experience.
