It is finished ...

... at least the working draft is. Who knows what my editor will say?
I refer, of course, to my piece about online poetry. Sad to say, I had to cut and cut, and many of your wonderful comments had to go. But I intend to acknowledge everyone by name come Sunday. And I also plan to gather all of the posts into a single post, so people can read in one place what everyone had to say. Most of the words in the piece are not mine. Mine simply connect the quotes into a narrative that, I hope, coheres. Moreover, this is only the beginning.

Update: I should have mentioned that the blogroll has been much expanded because of the piece. If I missed anything, let me know.


  1. Thank you very much, Frank, for the article and for your passion.


  2. I am very much looking forward to reading the column :-)

    ps--I envy your garden!

  3. When an editor like you writes something, who ends up being YOUR editor? Just curious.

  4. Wish I had an editor...

    Actually, that's unfair. I do have a couple of co-conspirators who make it their business to pull me up when I get too blustery.

    Looking forward to seeing the article, and the carnival (of course!). Thanks for your hard work on it, Frank.

  5. Yes, looking forward to it, Frank.

  6. I know of a lot of people who are looking forward to this article. It's amazing how many of my friends have emailed me to tell me about your effort. The buzz about this seems to have made it to everyone, even those friends of mine who think people who write poetry should be shot.

    Good Luck, Frank. Thanks! And thanks for the spot on your blogroll, I appreciate it tons.
