This blog is a way for friends, editors, and publishers to keep up with my tomfoolery. I hope you find what you are looking for.

I am now an official dissident, thanks to Angie at Dissident Voice. On Sundays, they publish poems that challenge "the distortions and lies of the corporate press and the privileged classes it serves."
Their goal is to provide "hard hitting, thought provoking and even entertaining news and commentaries on politics and culture that can serve as ammunition in struggles for peace and social justice."
I am pleased they found some merit in my poem 'Brown River.'
Dearly departed Allen Ginsberg doing Tai Chi in some hybrid version of Jewish-Buddhist-Gay-Poet heaven hath smiled upon me and convinced an Indian professor of English to accept one of my poems in a multi-national anthology.
Yep. The improbabilities and interconnections in this wide world never cease to amaze me.
After inviting me to submit in October (which is rare for me), I got word from Dr. Vivekanand Jha that my poem 'Allen Does Tai Chi' was accepted "for publication in the poetry anthology, ‘Universal Oneness: An Anthology of Magnum Opus Poems from around the World’ (360 poems by 360 poets from 60 Countries) to be published by Authorspress, New Delhi, India."
Authorspress and its imprints are leading publishers in India for Scholarly and Academic Writings,
edited books, Critical Anthologies, M. Phil & PhD Thesis, Poetry, Short Fiction, Novels, etcetra with a list of renowned writers to its credit.
They are committed to introducing new and vibrant authors from all over the world. They publish in English, Hindi as well as in all other national and regional languages.

I am in the final stages of publishing a children's picture book called "Ramone's Silver Rocket."
I thought it would be fun to include drawings from children, and I'd like to have parents send me e-mail with their child's drawing. Here are some details:
1. Send hand-drawn pictures of Ramone flying in his rocket or exploring on the moon. He likes to look for colorful moonstones, so include those if you want. My image below is just for fun. Your picture can look very different.
2. Include the child's name and age (so I can credit them in the book if they are picked). I need a postal address as well so I can send a contributor copy if they are picked. Please provide a US postal address only.
3. For winning entries, I will (a) credit the child in the book and (b) send a free contributor copy of the book when it's finished.
