“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a gret flower out of life, even if it’s cactus.” British Author and Playwright, Enid Bagnold (1998-1981), best known for Natonal Velvet (1935)
It was a tough. TOUGH! If I could I would nominate everyone who has contributed, but there were constraints on the types of submissions, dates of publication, and number of nominations editors can submit. So, here we are … The BeZine Best of Net nominations for June 2017 – July 2018.
- Thousands and Millions, John Anstie
- Earthquake and Devastation, Michael Dickel
- When NASA finishes mining / Carbon Footprint, Zoë Sîobhan Howarth-Lowe
- Margarita Serafimova, Six Poems
- On a Passage from the Mishna, Mike Stone
- The Sun-god at Mount Horeb, Martins Tomisin Olusola
I hope you’ll wish all these wonderful poets and writers well and take the time to read their work.
– Jamie Dedes, Managing Editor, The BeZine
We are leaving 100TPC Virtual up through end-of-day October 6th so that those who weren’t able to share their work – or even fave pieces on theme (Peace, Sustainability, Social Justice) by other authors – still have time to do so. Instructions in the post explain how to share your poems or other art … check it out …
Poet and writer, I was once columnist and associate editor of a regional employment publication. I currently run this site, The Poet by Day, an information hub for poets and writers. I am the managing editor of The BeZine published by The Bardo Group Beguines (originally The Bardo Group), a virtual arts collective I founded. I am a weekly contributor to Beguine Again, a site showcasing spiritual writers. My work is featured in a variety of publications and on sites, including: Levure littéraure, Ramingo’s Porch, Vita Brevis Literature,Compass Rose, Connotation Press, The Bar None Group, Salamander Cove, Second Light, I Am Not a Silent Poet, Meta / Phor(e) /Play, and California Woman. My poetry was recently read by Northern California actor Richard Lingua for Poetry Woodshed, Belfast Community Radio. I was featured in a lengthy interview on the Creative Nexus Radio Show where I was dubbed “Poetry Champion.”
