submit your full-length poetry manuscripts to the Octopus Books' April open reading period. You can submit electronically, by email attachment. We make the manuscripts anonymous, and by a committee of 8, we will select two or so for publication. And between you and me, the numbers are historically low this year, so get on it.
All dressed up, but no award to accept. I even wore my lucky skeleton gloves to the event. Alas! Congratulations to David Biespiel for winning the Stafford/Hall Award for poetry at the Oregon Book Awards last night for his book, The Book of Men and Women. Read about the event here.

Like always, bring a 5-er for the happy jar, and feel free to enjoy a few beers, some BB#4 ephemera, and killer poetry and killer music.
