Procrastination Station #50

Link love this week…

Poster poems: aubades // Chavez: poetry’s saviour? // Sean O Brien’s life in books // Poem of the week: Emily Bronte // Knitting a poem // AL Kennedy at the Edinburgh Fringe // Exams in Literature: Quiz // Google stopped in their tracks… for now


I am officially in love with Patricia Young.

Project:transparence — when are you ready to submit?

A brief history of zines.

Nubby Twiglet’s ‘how do you market yourself as a designer?’ article is brilliant, and applicable to pretty much any creative/commercial endeavour.

A truly sweet book cover…

Like Jane Austen? You will LOVE this place!

Contrariwise / literary tattoos featured in Forbes! (shame about the ignorant and negative quote they ended the article on… I don’t know who Nigel Rees is, but I now know he’s a moron.)

This is a pretty bad idea, methinks!

Discover the ONS Poetry Bookstore!

Found online this week!: Colin Will and Regina C Green at a handful of stones // a new poem from former FP Juliet M Wilson // JoAnne McKay shares her London Poetry Festival photos // tattoo-themed poetry from reader Beth // new stuff from former FPs Morganne Couch and William Soule // & reader Col asks “do spiders have feet?

Amazing dark and sinister advertisements.

How to draw graffiti tags.

Dinosaur lanterns and amazing post-it notes! Want!

This is a great article on bullying, and how to stop it.

Loving these shadows & scars graffiti pieces… and massive light-shows, too!

A fashion shoot on Sesame Street?!

Amazing stuff the weather can do.

An original punk rock scrapbook.

Yes, it’s a bit late in the year, but if you’re looking for a vintage bathing suit, here’s a great guide!

Please note: I am not getting married, I am just nosy: 20s wedding // Vegas wedding // A fat girl’s wedding survival guide (I love @definatalie!)

Tattoos!: Awesome // Awesome // Awesome

I made these last weekend and they are freaking good!

My sister thinks this looks like me.

& finally — The Shining: a sweet romantic comedy. I’d see it!

Have a great weekend!

Don’t forget The One Night Stanzas Store, my Etsy store, and their little sister, Edinburgh Vintage!

    I thought it was going to be some boring old post, but I’m glad I visited. I will post a link to this page on my blog. I believe my visitors will find that very useful.
