Jen Michalski, editor at JMWW and my *boss*, was kind to let me vent about a world without poetry. The Writing Program at Johns Hopkins, where I am a student in Fiction, axed its Poetry program last week. We are hoping for a UVA kind of reversal, so please read the post and sign the petition, but only if you write or read or otherwise give a damn about writing, about words, about creating a literary community and maintaining its vitality.
If you care, please go ==>> HERE
Otherwise, please don't bother.
Thanks and peace...
