Boxcar, Siren and Unpleasant Event Schedule

Wheeeeee! Good things do come in threes —

• Issue 6 of Boxcar Poetry Review is now up with poetry by Aaron Anstett, Lana Hechtman Ayers, Brent Fisk, Ann Wood Fuller, Do Gentry, Jude Goodwin, Matthew Little, Marty McConnell, Heather Salus, Erin Elizabeth Smith, Florencia Varela and.... **mumblemumble**

They're holding a poetry contest between May and August — which really looks interesting — on the theme of Elegy and Loss. So, watch out for that.

• Issue 3 of Siren is also online, with poetry by Cait Rappel, Jason Fraley, Jehanne Dubrow, Kristy Bowen, Mark DeCarteret, Nicole Cartwright Denison, Sam Rasnake and.... **glugluglug**

Am tickled pinkish to see so many fellow bloggers in this issue. Congrats everyone!

• Lastly, I've become an Unpleasant Event — word-wise and camera-wise. This is one of my favorite 'zines, especially since the editor updates almost every week and there's a continuous flow of poetry. So... I know you'll understand why I just have to break into all-out belly-dancing (c/o www.HelloCrazy.com):

Bestest Lush Poem Ever:

So, This Is Drink by Sean Lovelace (Diagram 6.6)
My multiple selves have to bow out of respect... and also because they're too drunk to stand up on their own. Tsk.

Congrats on all the new acceptances, Arlene. Your poems are wonderful. You're right, submitting poems is like gambling, you just never know what the outcome will be. It hasn't stopped me from submitting, I'm starting to wonder if it's more like an addiction though...lol. Take care!
