Whither poetry blogging?

Derek Motion’s recent posting of the text of his talk about poetry and blogging is a nice consideration of the ways that poets use blogs in their professional capacity as poets.

Derek’s post looks at three different poets’ blogs and the way that they use them – for announcements, for discussions of poetry, to recommend other poets’ work, for personal revelations, and to publish their own work as well – and then considers the merits of each poet’s decision to choose some or all of those functions in their own blogging practises.

It’s a really interesting discussion, and it’s inspired some good comments too. Well worth checking out.

Quelle Grammage!
this is a very well made poem. it's called "Travelling Through the Dark". *shudder* #williamstafford I am binge watchin star trek voyager right now and am gobsmacked by the recurring theme of helping out your friends and being nice to strangers even when theyre frightening because its the right thing to do. where has this theme gone when it comes to the stories we celebrate and share with each other? cool as... if you told me this was the last minke drink machine in the country i would believe you
