So I finally heard from Indiana
Review. I could tell by the feather-light s.a.s.e. that it was a
decline. Like many large journals, they sent a slip of paper with a
note informing me my work had not been accepted. On the bright side (if
there can be one) there was a personal wrote written to me from the
Poetry Editor. Personal notes are always very nice (but not very
comforting). It read:
We really enjoyed your poems, especially "Border Fragments." Sorry to have to pass!
-M.A.S. Poetry Editor
Again, nice, but it would have
been nicer to have been published. Oh well. Now I have three good poems
that I need to send out. Speaking of which, I looked at my poetry
submission log and couldn't remember if I had indeed sent off a
submission to Cue. Did I? I'll check back at earlier posts to see if I
mention it. Good thing this blog is all about process.
No word still from my friend
Claudia and I'm getting really concerned that this may truly prevent my
collaboration with MTC and Canal Alliance. Geez. I've left messages and
e-mails almost daily now and nothing. Nothing! Apparently she isn't
returning other people's phone calls (our director and other teatro
members). Yikes. I'm going to call her again this morning and this
evening. This is getting ridiculous and my patience is really running
out. I should tell MTC what's going on.
While discussing this with the teatro's director last night, we also talked a bit on the other projects for ETJ!
First, the website. No luck, I don't think he's "hired" any students
with coding ability. But, I could still use a team to help me develop
it. We'll see. Sometimes too many volunteers can hinder a process. So
I'm back to coding. Which I can do, it'll be just a slow as hell
Our director also proposed that I take a new role (yes, another role) as dramaturge. If you'll recall ETJ! writes
their own original theatrical pieces. In the past our director has led
the actors through writing exercises to develop dialogue and through
physical exercises to develop characters. He was the one who stitched
it all together to create the script itself. Now he's asking me to take
on this role. But to also suggest elements to the story and structure.
So it appeals to the playwright in me of course.
I know. I take on too much.
Speaking of which. I need to
e-mail my friend Mark. Switchback is soliciting an interview from him,
we want to interview writers who are also journalists to discuss
objectivity vs. subjectivity.
Busy busy busy.
