Well, I haven't been here in a while. I have a good reason - holidays, and then catching up! But that's all behind me now, and it's time to get back on the poetry bus and move on.

So, before we get to the main Friday course of "American Life in Poetry" here's an announcement - another poetry contest.

This one is for Twitter Poetry.

Don't know what Twitter Poetry is? It's an extremely short poem - 140 characters or less (that's characters, i.e. each letter, space and mark of punctuation counts as a character. Your word processing program probably counts them.)

Anyway, Utmost has a Twitter Poetry Contest happening. Find out all about it here.


For Canadian Poets the current contest is for poems on the theme of "Where is God"

Deadline - October 31st.

Check it out!


The latest "Poet's Classroom" column came online yesterday.

Read "Research: The Dietary Supplement Your Poems Can't Do Without".
