Herewith, a random selection of things that have flashed across the screen:

  • An article in the Portland Press Herald (the other Portland) about a poetry contest in Skowhegan, Maine. In it you’ll find the term “haiku bombing.”
  • A review in The Guardian of English Renaissance Poetry: A Collection Of Shorter Poems From Skelton To Jonson by John Williams (published 1963, reissued 2012) that describes the book in terms — “punchy and sinuous” — that may cause you to rush out and purchase the 398-page tome.
  • An announcement from the Library of Congress that Juan Felipe Herrera has been appointed to serve a second term as the 21st Poet Laureate Consultant in Poetry.
  • An announcement in The Seattle Review of Books (and a link to the Facebook event) regarding poetry goings-on in Redmond, Washington, this Sunday, April 17, 2016.
  • A link to the fine literary journal Clover: A Literary Rag with a reminder that submissions for Volume 11 are open until April 30.
