The Tuesday poem, over at the dusie blog, is now five months old! Since April 9, 2013, I’ve been curating a weekly poem over at the dusie blog, the offshoot of the Swiss online journal Dusie (http://www.dusie.org/), edited/published by poet and American expat Susana Gardner.
The series has aimed to publish a mix of authors from the dusie kollektiv, as well as Canadian and international poets, ranging from emerging to the established. Over the next few weeks and months, watch for new work by dusies and non-dusies alike, including Deborah Poe, Ken Belford, Hugh Thomas, nathan dueck, Hailey Higdon, Stephanie Bolster, Jessica Smith, Mark Cochrane, Amanda Earl, Robert Swereda, Colin Smith, Sarah Mangold, Joe Blades, Maxine Chernoff, Peter Jaeger, Dennis Cooley, Louise Bak, Phil Hall, Fenn Stewart, derek beaulieu and Marthe Reed.
A new poem will appear every Tuesday afternoon, Central European Summer Time, just after lunch (which is 8am in Central Canada terms).
So far, the Tuesday poem series has featured new writing by Elizabeth Robinson, Megan Kaminski, Marcus McCann, Hoa Nguyen, Stephen Collis, j/j hastain, David W. McFadden, Edward Smallfield, Erín Moure, Roland Prevost, Maria Damon, Rae Armantrout, Jenna Butler, Cameron Anstee, Sarah Rosenthal, Kathryn MacLeod, Camille Martin, Pattie McCarthy, Stephen Brockwell, Rosmarie Waldrop and Nicole Markotić.
I, myself, have been fortunate enough to participate in a number of previous dusie-related projects, including the fifth dusie kollectiv, and guest-edited “Dusie 10: the Canadian issue.”
