Everybody, Everywhere





Jennifer L. Knox has pronounced her judgment in a recent round of HTML Giant's Tournament of Bookshit: Alcoholism vs. Everybody Has a Story.

Danielle Pafunda has a new piece, "Fake-ish Memoir Totes Sincere, Unusually Embodied Affect Performance" at Montevidayo and some excerpts of her "novel under the sign of poetry" at Pank.

Sandra Simonds has new poems in the Boston Review and Open Letters Monthly.


Peter Davis's Poetry! Poetry! Poetry! gets an enthusiastic thumbs-up review (the cover works!) from Rattle and has several poems featured in a recent issue of Atticus Review.


Shanna Compton has a new poem appearing on bus posters in Atlanta, GA thanks to the Emory Poetry Council's Poetry on the Move series. And her forthcoming Bloof book has morphed into two books. We're having twins! (Look for them here October and April.)

Finally, we remind you that our Open Reading Period for Poetry Chapbooks is still open.

BLOOF would like our submissions to better reflect the diversity of our friends and peers in poetry.

BLOOF would like our submissions to better reflect the diversity of our friends and peers in poetry. 

Right now our submissions (as wonderful and plentiful as they are) do not.

This is our first open reading period ever. Perhaps we have not yet made clear that though we focus primarily on innovative poetry by women, we are also actively interested in work by Human Poets of any race, gender, sexual orientation, spiritual philosophy, or ability?

Well, WE ARE. This reading period is open to any poet writing in English (because that's the only language we read fluently enough to edit).

There are 2 more weeks to go. But we are going to keep working on this long after.
