#NaBloPoMo 6 – The Ottowa Poetry Newsletter

IMG_20130326_214014

My friend Rupert Loydell has emailed me a list of blog posts curated by Rob Mclennan on writing at the Ottawa Poetry Newsletter blog.

I thought it might be of interest to readers wanting to encounter some new voices and approaches to the process of writing.

Here is a favourite quote so far, from a post by Gina Myers, quoting Eileen Myles defining the New York School aesthetic:

“As an aesthetic it means putting yourself in the middle of a place and being excited and stunned by it, and trying to make sense of it in your work.”

Here is a list of posts included in the newsletter so far. Plunge in and enjoy!
