GP's July Bookclub Recommendations

This month we're suggesting that our 9 followers purchase for reading pleasures all of the free pdf e-book issues of "Yes Poetry" featured on the

Each manifestation of YP offers countless serifs and incites into life, as well as scrutiny as to the power of the written ward. Just as editor-in-chief, Joanna C. Valente, writes "That being said, a poem needs to exist in some kind of reality--if a poem lives only in an abstract limbo, the reader is literally left in a labyrinth. Without an audience, what good is poetry? What good would any writing be? Why write what makes you uncomfortable? ... Some may disagree."

What a reality these writings in which exist! Virtually!

I am now fully resolved to never again pretend to like poems nor will I waste another day contemplating metaphors. Thank you, Yes Poetry, for returning me to life!"

As always, once we've all chanced upon familiarizing ourselves with the contents of this poetry miracle, we'll be meeting at the Denny's along Highway 97A in Enderby to discuss the finer points of the poets' use of white space and homonyms. Siblings welcome. BYOB.
