This week I sent off 8 poems for submission to an anthology being assembled by a group I belong to, The Ontario Poetry Society. This was rather a safe move though, as at least two will appear. But still, it is submitting, so I am counting it! I have done more submitting so far this year than most years entirely, so I am feeling good about it.
I attended the launch of two chapbooks at Tree Reading Series, and was one of the readers for that. These books came out of the two Master Workshops Tree has put on: November 2010 and August 2011. Another is coming up next month which I will also be attending. The presenter is John Barton, a well-known and respected Canadian poet and editor of The Malahat Review.
Back in January, when I started this challenge and the River of Stones one, I had attended a pottery workshop here in Carleton Place at the studio of Victoria Jenkins. Some of you had asked me to put up the pictures, which I did so the other day. You can see those in my post titled Pottery Cat and Penguins on March 16th. I have also reposted the small stone entitled: Claywork along with the pics.
