It is with great glee that I recently discovered the FLUXLIST. (Click here for a previous post on Fluxus.)
If you are a junkie for all things Cuban, check out Adam Kufeld’s essay and photographs at Atlas 6.
Check out Webster’s Daily, a blog in which Josh W. posts one "found poem" a day from the first edition of Webster’s American Dictionary (1828). I find them downright enchanting! Here are a few examples: Growl [n.] The murmur of a cross dog. Hope [n.] A sloping plain between ridges of mountains. [Not inContinue reading “Poetry from the Dictionary”
Check out Andy Bell’s photoblog, Deceptive Media. It doesn’t get any better than this.
Check out five new Stir Fry poems by Marko Niemi (Finland) on Vispo, the visual poetry blog of Jim Andrews. Niemi’s new work combines aspects of web technology, concrete poetry, and visual poetry. Although aimed more at the head than the heart, the gap between title and text can be intriguing. For example, "Four Musicians"Continue reading “Stir Fry”
Found is a blog that posts found writing– love letters, birthday cards, kids’ homework, to-do lists, ticket stubs, poetry on napkins, telephone bills, doodles. I always enjoy visiting this site. Check out today’s postcard scrap; it reads: the closer I get to you the farther I feel from me.

I’ve been writing prose this week because I have a deadline looming ahead of me. I think that I find writing prose easier because of blogging. Has blogging affected your feelings about writing?
All around the blogosphere, things are happening. Michael Hoerman has done great posts all week over at his blog Pornfeld. The one about Frank Stanford and the poetry of the Ozarks is especially interesting to me. I enjoyed reading Jay’s thoughts on David Byrne, art, and PowerPoint (the Microsoft program beloved by corporate America) onContinue reading “Abouts”
There are a lot of poetry blogs out there in the blogosphere, and since I’ve started Big Window, I’ve done more than my fair share of surfing. Today I thought I’d point out a few of my favorites. If you want to know the latest news related to poetry, stop by the Poetry Hut. JilllyContinue reading “Islands in the Sun”
