Default Ecotone special sub period--act fast!

Formal poet friends, Ecotone is open through 1/1/2019 for a special issue, and they're very formal-friendly. Read all about it here.

Yes, thanks, Maryann! Yesterday I sent Ecotone four poems, thus fulfilling my new year's resolution to submit more poems for publication in 2019 than I did in 2018. Now I can return to my usual state of sloth in good conscience.

Be sure that it is a "well simulated" good conscience (see current Metrical Poetry threat "Watching and Waiting" by Daniel Kemper, where there are a lot of simulated posts). If your conscience isn't simulated, it doesn't count these days.

Methinks the Ticebot 3000 doth protest too much. Are you getting that uncomfortable feeling that something's pulling the strings, Allen?

Mark, I know, I ought not have made that post just above on this imperishable thread, when it referred to a short-term Metrical thread involving you and I, however marvelous. I promise to simulate real chagrin: My only excuse is galloping euphoria. I must change my life. But it’s hard, boss, so hard. Aargh.

Although the submissions window for the love-themed issue is now closed, Ecotone will be opening their submissions window for one day only, Feb. 14--in the spirit of things, apparently.

Highlights from the guidelines:

'In honor of our fourteenth year of publication (also, happy Valentine’s Day!) we’re particularly interested in seeing fresh examples of the sonnet, the rondel prime, and the bref double. Formal invention and noniambic meters are encouraged, but show us your metrical skills (particularly with noniambic meters!), and bring out your fancy rhyme schemes, however slant. All kinds of sonnets are welcome: Petrarchan, Shakespearean, Spenserian. What’s new to say with these forms? We want to hear it."

"And one more note: There’s plenty of gratuitous and cynical writing on this subject already. Such submissions are discouraged."
