New POP by Mathias Svalina up now!

A little late announcing this here, but this month’s POP by Mathias Svalina is up now!  Please read, and blog, and forward far and wide.

October 6 brings us a special edition of POP in honor of the 10th anniversary of  Radiohead’s Kid A, featuring writings, musings, and poemings about the seminal album by a pretty amazing group of writers.  Be sure to stay tuned for that.

In other news,  I am obsessed with this song right now:

Oh, and apparently Shel Silverstein authored a song called “Fuckem’!”  It’s true!

News & Notes

Why is September always better feeling then every other month??

Some things:

Claire Donato’s awesome POP essay is up for your reading pleasure.  Next week will bring us an essay by Mathias Svalina so definitely stay tuned for that.

LIT magazine is now accepting ELECTRONIC SUBMISSIONS! Amazing!  I’d like to give an extra special thanks to prose editor Mia Eaton for all her good work getting the software installed!  We seriously would not have been able to make the change without her!  So what are you waiting for?  Send us some poems.  Our fall reading period is officially open!

In other news, the awesome new journal Esque edited by Amy King and Ana Božičević officially launched today and I have a poem in it.  I’m in great company!

Also, I was one of five finalists for the Omnidawn Chapbook contest.  Pretty good bad news.  Omnidawn is going to run a feature about each of the finalists on their blog so I will keep you posted.

Other then that I say bring on the fall.  I have no idea what comes next but I guess I am ready for it.
