One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

emerge!

Hello, fellow Toads. It's Marian here with a quick announcement that I hope will be of interest. A poet friend of mine, Ariana Den Bleyker, is Editor-in-Chief of Emerge Literary Journal, a print and web publication "dedicated to the written word of emerging writers." I have recently joined as a reader to help Ariana out with sorting through submissions, and it occurred to me to broadcast the opportunity to my co-conspirators in the Garden: 
Please consider submitting poems and/or short fiction to Emerge! Take a look at the Submission Guidelines.
Ariana Den Bleyer's first collection of poems, The Trees Are On Fire, was just announced via ALL CAPS PUBLISHING. Ariana is not a blogger herself (imagine!), but she is plenty busy with Emerge. Submissions to Emerge must be previously unpublished "with the exception of those included on a personal blog." So she gets us, friends. Submit away!

Many thanks for sharing this with us, Marian. It is great to hear about two publishing ventures being undertaken by Indie poets. It's very heartening.

Wow...thank you, Marian...I really need to start thinking "submit," more...I kinda just want to make a book instead though. ;) I'm a lazy submitter but I don't think making a book would be any easier! :O Haha!
