We'll get the word out, because that's the kind of guy we are.
And I'll be the first to toot the horn for Frank Hinton.
Decomp magazine has nominated Frank for the storySouth’s 2010 Million Writers Award!
Congratulations on the nomination, Frank!
Or, I suppose decomP. Hee hee. Sorry.
I tooted too...
Frank's gifted. A great piece.
since friday i have a previously unpublished piece "The Funeral" out on nicole hirschi's excellent literary blog "Wordvamp":
since there's no author's note to that piece, here's the long and the short of it: i wrote this, i believe in the summer a week after the funeral of my uncle, who was a great artisan with a somewhat sad life. i was shocked at how dispassionate and disinterested the priest seemed during the service in the chapel. at the grave, i improvised a short speech in which i compared my uncle to a lion speculating that he'd probably be roaming the fields of elysium as one now. later that year, his first grandchild was born and they named her "leonie". and i swear my uncle's muse was present at that funeral (otherwise i wouldn't have mentioned her in the piece).
Hey all! Sorry I am a little slow at being a productive member here, there and everywhere. Such is the life of a single-parent (or any parent for that matter) during the school year.
I have a poem that went live at Referential Magazine this week titled: THE JUDAS HORSE
It is paired with a lovely photo of 1970's kitsch by Melanie Faith, and things I played with daily as a kid. I LOVED MY LITTLE PEOPLE!
Congratulations! Great poem.
