Procrastination Station #63


So, it’s been ages since the last procrastination station (sorry)! Allow me to make up for it…

OK, first thing’s first — I had a poem published by The Guardian yesterday!

Famous writers’ rejection letters.

How to use a semi colon.

Poster poems: alliteration

A great article on the difference between self publishing and vanity publishing.

StreamofPoetry: every poetry tweet in one place (thanks Paul!)

Your first look at the Howl movie (James Franco has Ginsberg’s voice totally down. I am SO excited to see this movie!)

I love the Rejectionist.

I loved this satire of Cormac McCarthy’s The Road

…and in a similar (though less serious) vein, How Twilight Works

An amazing book cover — and more at Chainsaws and Jelly.

Found online this week: The Student mentioned Read This Press! // Col took inspiration from my anagram poems, and wrote some of his own // my jewels appeared at Chainsaws & Jelly! // Swiss responded to this post by writing a poem! // Mairi also responded! // Howie Good’s new book has the best blurb ever! // & more on his books // Jim Murdoch on Bukowski // a Chris Lindores poem illustrated… and some other stuff he’s been up to // the Carry a Poem ladies at the BBC! // & two happy customers with their Read This Store purchases!

Chainsaws & Jelly are seeking submissions from creative types… that sounds like you lot!

Some Banksy artwork you may not have seen…

Can I have one of these, please?

A monster collection of Moleskine hacks

Rare photos of famous people (thanks @JFDerry!)

Amazing walking wind-powered beach beasts!

I want to live in this house.

There’s new stuff at both my shops — Edinburgh Vintage and the Read This Store!

& finally… the fabulous Vanessa Hidary

T shirt war!

& I love this song, and its video.

Don’t forget to visit The Read This Store, and its sister store, Edinburgh Vintage!
