got word today from the folks who run the workshop......your standard "unfortunately we can't accept everyone who applies....yadda yadda yadda"

such is life.
i think it means i need to work harder; which is a pain because i'm finding it increasingly difficult to have the right people who will give me good serious critical feedback.

bad luck chicken, just keep at it! always aim for higher standards with everything you write.

i am too finding serious critical evaluations hard to get


how about i seriously critique some of yours, and you critique some of mine?

Keep at it chicken, to paraphrase Groucho Marx, I wouldn't want to join any poetics workshop that wouldn't have you as a member.

But how unfortunate that the thing you need to improve (critical feedback) could have been found at the place that wanted you to improve before they let you in...

Very sorry to know this, chicken. I hope you don't feel dishearted by the news. The main thing is that you have potential and artisitc vision - and you do for sure. Things like these do pay, I am sure. I guess it's not easy to get proper feedback because not many people really know or understand poetry.
But still, you have the will to write, you have the passion. And if you're feeling disappointed right now, it's a feeling you can transform into words.

thank you rubygirl. you're the bestest.
not sure if transforming this mess into words is the thing to do right now though. i've yet to hit ya'll with "Gorzal" (who was Lot's wife, the word is Hebrew for "the nameless one" or so i've been told) or "Matthew: 9:5" which has an absolutely dismal ending, not in terms of wordcraft, but in terms of meaning. it ain't happy. and neither am i.

the clouds always part. rain always comes. and the sun will shine tomorrow. this is the way of things.
