  1. Reblogged this on The Poetry Channel and commented:
    If you haven’t yet followed Jamie Dede’s, The Poet by Day (one of those ironic names since she’s a nocturnal writer like myself) what on earth are you waiting for? Good information about opportunities to find good homes for your poems, good poetry, and …. Good grief, isn’t that enough? 😁
    Thanks for sharing, Jamie.
