I'm one of the reviews editors at a new online project called The Volta. It's going to be spearheaded by Joshua Marie Wilkinson and will launch in January.
The Volta (thevolta.org) will host weekly reviews of new poetry books on our Friday Feature column; poe...try-related news items (daily); as well as videos of writers reading from their work under our Medium column (weekly); and three distinct columns, each of which will be updated monthly: Evening Will Come (poetics in prose); They Will Sew The Blue Sail (poems by 3 poets); and Tremolo (interviews with poets, publishers, editors, and other writers).
So, I'm writing to you all to see if you might have a review or two of recent poetry titles that I could consider for publication. Also to let you know that I'll be considering reviews year round, so if something in the future comes up, do let me know. Reviews can run from 750-3,000 words. We will take an active hand as editors, but are happy to do so. Anyhow, please do spread the word. You can write to me directly here:firstname.lastname@example.org
Today we’re pleased to announce the launch of PennSound Radio, a 24-
hour stream of readings and conversations from the PennSound poetry
archive. Our daily schedule includes rebroadcasts of such series as
Live at the Writers House, Charles Bernstein's Close Listening, and
Leonard Schwartz's Cross-Cultural Poetics, as well as a curated
selection of our favorite performances. You can play PennSound Radio
through iTunes on your computer, or by installing the free TuneIn app
on your iPhone, BlackBerry, or Android device. Listen at work! At
home! At the gym! While rebuilding a transmission! And while you're at
it, follow us on Twitter (@PennSoundRadio) to keep up with all of our
new programs and special features.
