(re)created (bigger, better, faster)

I learned a lot this weekend

Especially about my life

The Atlanta Poets Group reminded me why art matters

There really is a difference between college poetry scenes and scenes outside the university (non career poets for one thing)

It was nice to finally meet Laura Carter in person

We spent some good time discussing the ceiling

The Eyedrum was a terrific space

A big warehouse with some fascinating art

Some real jewels and some good trades

John Lowther is one hell of an intense and genuine fellow

Randy Prunty traded some Maurice Scully for my copy of Perhaps This is A Rescue Fantasy. YES!!!!

We all got a big packet of AGP books

I am very excited to dive in

But first I have to read 120 English 101 essays on waste/efficiency, "my generation," and some essays on William Burroughs

I wanna check out her Babies

Check out our performance from Athens here (thanks Didi):


Also, here is an audio file of the Lucifer Poetics Group in Baltimore last summer (thanks Matthew Shindell):

By Robert Archambeau

I began the first half of this article (Notre Dame Review #4) by mentioning some of the limits to the legendary hospitality Ireland has shown to its poets. If you arrive in Ireland from any point of departure outside of Eastern Europe, you will indeed find a public far more willing than the one you left behind to grant poets the recognition all but the most ascetic secretly crave. However, this hospitality has never extended to Irish poets w…
