I am delighted to announce that our first anthology has been published!

Poems From The Witching Hour, is a result of a year long search for the most exciting and scary modern day poems. This volume is a collection of verse by a group of poets wrestling against the creatures from the supernatural. It introduces us to an imaginative, dark, anarchic realm where anything is possible... where real life crashes into the imaginary creatures of the night. Meet the hungry vampire, the hookman waiting in the shadows and many more extraordinary creatures.

Deirdra, Then how does Brautigan know about it? 

Comment by John Ray on June 11, 2012 at 10:09am

An excellent thing for Jesus to hold.  I like Brautigan. 

10 words?

A limerick writer

Reads Eliot

Says "how'd he do that?"

Life is short, art long.

And success?  Very far off.

Joseph Conrad, some words taken out.

Any of you know of poems, any form, written for pay?  I'm not a proud man, I made some money on themed limericks earlier this year (that should prove I'm not a proud man, if I admit that).  And if you can write limericks on theme, you'll give about anything a try.
