Opportunity Knocks

THE REMEMBERED ARTS JOURNAL, Modern Life, Awakened Art accepts poetry submissions and creative writing, essays, performing arts, crafts and visual arts.  “In the competitive, compartmentalized, modern world, it can be easy to neglect the creative impulses that make us human. We put aside our sketching and scribbling to pay our bills, raise our children, serve our communities, and pursue our ambitions. The Remembered Arts Journal is a forum for reviving almost forgotten artistry. Its purpose is to encourage readers and contributors rediscover the joy of creating and sharing works of art.” A lovely fledgling publication, they’ve produced two issues to date and it looks like they’re working on monthly publication.  The deadline for the July issue is past, so just watch for their announcement for August.

HeleneCardonaLIS1200pxLife in Suspension (Salmon Poetry, 2016), the latest collection of poet, actor and translator, HÉLÈNE CARDONA, debuted with stellar reviews.

Hélène co-edits Fulcrum: An Antholgy of Poetry and Aesthetics, is Co-International Editor of Plume, essay contributor to The London Magazine, and co-producer of the documentary Pablo Neruda: the Poet’s Calling. She writes children stories and co-wrote with John FitzGerald the screenplay Primate, based on his novel. She is fluent in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian and Greek and has received fellowships from the Goethe-Institut, in Bremen, Germany, and the University of Andalucía, Spain. This collection was written in English and translated into French. Both versions are included in the book.

Hélène Cardona keenly understands poetry’s insistence that we slow down, downshifting into a more measured and conscious pace. Her powerful poems are written line by certain line, which is how her readers gratefully experience them.” —Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate

Look for an intimate interview with Hélène coming to THE POET BY DAY, Celebrating American She-Poets series soon.
