The photo above is a snapshot from my living room right now. I’ve been on overdrive producing statement necklaces for a craft fair I’m exhibiting at next weekend. Most of these beauties are up at the store in the meantime, too, if you see anything you like!
But although my living room is a total mess, ONS is not! I’ll admit, I had kind of let it go to rack and ruin recently, and for that I apologise! The One Night Stanzas Store was still advertising Christmas deals and sold-out pamphlets, and my bio was seriously behind the times! But if you look at the top right-hand corner of One Night Stanzas‘ homepage now, you’ll see it’s all been tidied up a bit.
The One Night Stanzas bookstore is no more. Sorry guys — blame yourselves! You all nagged me for a cheap place to buy poetry books and then no one bought any! However, One Night Stanzas does still have a Store page — you can still grab the Read This Press jewellery and pamphlets by following this link.
“About One Night Stanzas” and “About Claire” have now been merged — they’re just About now. And “Contact” has become Contribute — so if you want to send me something, ask me something, give me feedback or write something for the blog, that’s now your place.
While I’m here I just want to say two more things…
One, I’m sorry for the slow-down in postings over the past little while. My life is becoming increasingly busy, hectic and exciting, with so many projects to work on, events to attend and so on! I’m now teaching at college and Uni, reading a PhD, working the performance poetry circuit, helping to co-ordinate this collection, making jewellery, editing chapbooks, judging poetry contests, working on major poetry commissions and preparing for the return of Read This Magazine in not too long a time… plus trying to find time to write! It’s insane, but fantastic. But it does mean One Night Stanzas has to take a back seat sometimes.
And two? Thanks so much for sticking around, reading, commenting, sending me links, following me on Twitter, inviting me to read at events, sending your books for me to review, recommending stuff and doing everything else that you do. You guys rock.
