CFS: Blast Furnace

I always like to post Blast Furnace’s call for submissions, and this is the newest one.  Blast Furnace is looking for poems based on song, film, or a work of art.  Of course, according to the guidelines, they also read outside the theme.  Take a look here for more information.  Work will be considered until November 15, 2011.

Blast Furnace Thursday

I just got done with my final grades and am now reading the newest issue of Blast Furnace, which features two of my poems (you will have to scroll down to read my work).   So many great poems here — I especially enjoyed, “Flea Market” by Dalenna Moser.

The Big Thaw

Finally!  The snow is melting, the ice is melting…it seems as if my whole world is melting.  And I am just fine with that.  Rumor has it that as I am writing this post, it’s fifty degrees outside.  Maybe the rainstorm that is coming will rinse the winter salt off my car…

There’s a thaw in the submission front, too!  This past week Blast Furnace accepted two of my poems and Flyway: Journal of Writing and Environment accepted one of my prose poems.  You have heard me talk about Blast Furnace, but Flyway is one of my favorite journals, too!  (Next to journals that focus on Blue Collar/Working-class issues, I love journals that focus on sense of place or the natural environment)

Here’s hoping that all the thaws in my life will keep melting…

Blast Furnace Goes Online

For those of you with blue-collar roots, you may want to check out the first issue of Blast Furnace.  And hey, even if you don’t have blue-collar roots, you may want to read this issue anyways — there’s some great work published!
