Our own John Burroughs got some exposure on the internet recently-- check him out on the "Talk With Me" podcast out of Lawrence Kansas, hosted by Marcia Epstein, where he talks about starting out in poetry, how he became a publisher, about his newest book, Loss and Foundering, and even reading a few poems:
And if you can't get enough of John, he's featured in a 40-minute video on "The CookBook" ("food/art/conversations"), a video series brought out from the Sundress Academy for the Arts hosted by Darren C. Demaree and Christopher Bowen:
Happy birthday to us! There's been 1,181 posts since then-- oops, that's 1,182 now-- and it's hard to believe we're still going. Year 11, here we come! Now, with that said, if we're going to survive another year, I have to say we need your help-- we've always needed your help, and we need it now more than ever. The blog isn't a one-man show: this blog belongs to the Cleveland poetry community: this blog is your blog. So, we want you to contribute. Join the team! We want you! Write up what happened at a poetry reading you attended, or a slam, or an author reading! Tell us about your philosophy of poetry, or why poetry is dead (or isn't dead)! Tell us why Cleveland is unique! Tell us about a poet we don't know, or about a part of the Cleveland poetry community that we haven't been covering-- Cleveland poetry is a big, big tent, and we each sometimes only see our only little corner of it: show us where poetry lives in your community. Please-- we need you! We don't want your money-- Clevelandpoetics: the blog has been free (and ad-free!) since the beginning. What we want is your posts. Want to join team? Want to just write a guest post? We want you. Write us at firstname.lastname@example.org and volunteer to join the team now!
