well, now ...

Hi everybody -- I hope the guy with no social etiquette (thanks Cecil) is allowed a chance to speak here too ... Seriously, I don't mind everybody's dissection of everything that's wrong with LitKicks. A few of you have been suggesting why we made the changes we made, and yes, I think everybody gets...

action poetry

Well, I might as well get my turn to talk here. First, I just want to speak for myself to say I'm really proud of the book. I like the cover (naturally, since I commissioned it and told the artist exactly what I wanted) and I like every poem, every story and every page in the book. If some people ha...

online vs. trad

Well, e-dog, there are only a few areas where I want to move in the direction of traditional print journals. I'm definitely not trying to take creative inspiration from any print journal I know of, because I don't think that is where the action is at in today's literature. I don't read Granta or Par...

let's give this a rest

Doreen -- Let's give this a rest for a few days. To tell the truth, I am still pissed off. And I guess your recent responses here make me think that you haven't heard anything I've said about what got me pissed off in the first place. I don't mind complaints and suggestions if they are useful ones. ...

happy sukkot

Hi Judih -- well, I'll pick B. October Earth is not the permanent new LitKicks look. It's designed to be a transitional phase, a raft to get us from one side of the river to the other. What we'll find on the other side, we won't know till we get there. But yes, there will be interactivity, among oth...

yes

Well, when G.A. says "i get what they're doing now, they're upping the ante, asking us to condense, focus, hone our skills. and that's something i like to see. i appreciate that" ... Yes, exactly, that's what we're trying to do. There is a lot of talent amongst us, and in all of us. There is no excu...

hmm, well ...

Well, Judih, I actually would say we're just trying to reach the editorial consistency level of an average literary journal, like Granta or Paris Review or whatever. The truth is, it was a major eye-opening experience for us to put together the "Action Poetry" book. Speaking just for myself, I was s...

okay ...!

Well, I did not intend to hurt Doreen's feelings. But let me describe how this played out from my point of view. First, Doreen couldn't find the edit button. I think she posted about this about 15 times and sent me a few emails about it too. Then, she let me and everybody know that she didn't like t...

style

Yes, this is true, we are trying to adopt consistent styles -- upper case first letters in sentences, names and titles, normal grammar, normal spelling, etc. Maybe it would be a good idea for us to put a note about this on the posting page ... we'll do that soon. Glorious, I'm sorry to hear you foun...
