Progress Report

Created: Jun 01, 2013

Things are coming along nicely. We've received quite a number of submissions and I'd like to take this opportunity to say thanks to everyone. We're still going through the submissions, and while we've made some decisions, others will happen after the deadline.

As Subprimal Poetry Art/Music is a work in progress, expect some changes and updates as things move along. For instance, we're working on providing some of the work in audio format, with the poet reading the work to music that I've provided. Actually, it's the other way around. I start with inspiration of the poet's voice and words. Then I look for music to augment their work. There might not be time to do all poems, but this is definitely a direction that we want to keep going in. Poetry in an oral tradition and it's always great to hear the poet read their work. Plus, collaboration between the arts provides another level of artistic expansion and appreciation.

Also, concerning updates to the web site, we've implemented a commenting system. Right now, it's only available on these blog entries, but when the issue goes live, it'll be available on the poem and art work pages also.

Thanks again everyone. I'm expecting more entries near the deadline (or am I the only one who does that?) and appreciate your patience as we go through the various entries. Meanwhile, if you thinking about submitting and haven’t yet done so, take a look at the submission guidelines. Love to hear from you.
