Mid-Week Field Notes–April 20, 2022

Field Notes

Some very quick things:

  1. Two more sets of rejections of my poetry have come in from what I’d categorize as Tier 1 literary journals. While I can certainly aim lower, I want to print out all recently written poems and work on each one, asking myself: what imagery can I add to make the poem more effective; have I left anything out; does everything need to be here; is this form effective?
  2. Amherst Writers & Artists dedicates the month of May to its Write Around the World fundraiser. For as little as a $10 donation, writers can choose from among dozens of opportunities to write with others around the world to timed prompts. I’m donating my time to leading three sessions focused on writing the past. See the event schedule.
  3. In commemoration of Yom Hashoah, please join Leon Geyer and Avi Wisnia, grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, as they share how their grandparents’ legacies shaped their lives and mission.
