WIZ announcements and link bric-a-brac

Frequent WIZ contributor Karen Kelsay’s new book of poetry, Lavender Song, is out and available for sale here.     Karen’s formalist poetry is a well-kept garden of lovely sensibilities.   For samples of her work published on WIZ, go here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

Writers: The deadline for Torrey House Press’s creative non-fiction contest is coming faster than you might think: September 30th.   Entries can run pretty long, 2,000 to 10,000 words, and first place prize is $1,000.   An entry fee of $25 is required, but that’s a standard amount for this kind of competition.

Over at Our Mother’s Keeper, Jason Brown has a wonderful piece on the Sacred Grove that I think qualifies as recommended reading.   Jason’s   writing demonstrates depth of perception.   But more than that, he seems to have a sense for the dynamism and sensitivity of language’s teeming environment and engages well in it.   I appreciate the care his words show.

This story is just so cool I had to link to it.   I have a (very very) soft spot in my heart for chelonians.

A fascinating and thought-provoking story out of India with stunning photos of an enraged leopard waging war against a village.   I hope more information comes out about this incident.   I’m sure there’s more to the story than shows through in print.
