Winding down

My original plan: go dark for the month of December. A full stop. Step away from the cutter, folder, and stapler. But it is already the 5th and I am still working on getting an impressive, if overwhelming, number of miniature books out to their authors.

But I do need to spend some time this month shifting gears and preparing Poems-For-All for the new year. And there’s that whole holiday thing and time with family stuff I’d like to give a try.

So… Poems-For-All is (mostly) closed for the rest of the year. I won’t turn submissions away, or anything like that, but you likely won’t hear from me until January, 2018. Same goes for inquiries about the status of your book.

A fresh start

The website is once again up and operational as the Poems-For-All Project transitions to a new space on the website. For some, there was no disruption. For those of you who were surprised to find an “account suspended” notice when you tried to visit the old site, you have my apologies. Please change your links accordingly, especially if you’ve been kind enough to include one for this site on your blog or website.

Please use only is no longer in use.

If you’re new here, please see what Poems-For-All is all about.

I had the great pleasure of working closely with MK designing the cover for her poem Mr. Bukowski I Didn’t Know You Were Dead. We came close several times, divining a few covers that came close, but not quite. Then she took the picture. While all the other cover attempts included my own efforts to fuse, meld, layer images together, this image, the one perfect vehicle to convey everything I wanted this cover to convey, required no modifications whatsoever. Even its inherent blur was perfect. Our patience paid off.

Update: Everything on the new site pretty much works. The appearance will change. New features added. But presently, everything you need to know about the Poems-For-All Project came be found here.

The Poems-For-All website is in a state of flux as we transition to a new location in the digital ether. It will return soon!
