A Note From Peter Murphy

Peter Murphy writes and maintains the  mailing list of poetry events and news in New Jersey and across the border.
If you aren't already subscribed, you should do so now.
Also, if you host readings and have poetry news, here, he supplies the submission format.
Right now, Peter, a retired English teacher and current  poet, is conducting a getawary for writers and poets in Wales. But he is still thinking about all of us here in Jersey.

Dear PoetryNJ Subscribers,

As your empty inbox suggests, there has not been a lot of literary activity going on in the tri-state area in August. Do not despair, things will pick up in September when Poets House opens its brand new center in lower Manhattan and other organizers return from their vacations from words.

That said, today begins Myth, Mountain & Imagination, a getaway for poets and writers in Wales []. For the next week I will be in the heart of the Snowdonia Mountains leading fifteen writers through adventures in words and in wild Wales. There will be no internet, no email, and no posts on PoetryNJ.

If you are an event organizer, please email your information formatted like the sample below to, and I will post it when I come down from the mountain. Please give me at least two weeks notice, more if you can. Last year, we posted more than 800 events. I need as much help as you can give me.

That's it for now.
