White mice, white
90 degree coat edges
below knees-I have
a history of
not trying to have
if you know what I mean.
never could get too
comfortable as they always seemed a little
too comfortable with
me, my flesh me,
and its theoretical, but still
What will I do
if and when
they should begin

So coming up very soon is a big event for Forum — we will once again be having a fundraiser for the magazine at the Hotel Utah Saloon featuring poets Sharon Doubiago, Louise Nayer, Alexandra Teague, novelist Seth Harwood and live music from Francesca Lee.
It’s happening Friday, April 16, at the Hotel Utah Saloon
$8.00, 21 and over, 8:00 pm
A big thank you to those of you who submitted their work, we have gotten a ton of great stuff and we’re working on putting it all together. There will be a bit more going on here on the blog in the coming weeks, a couple of big announcements as well so stay tuned.
The deadline for submissions for the next issue has been extended to next week, Tuesday, March 9 so don’t fret if you missed the March 1 deadline, there’s still time (but not too much).
We are up an running for the spring semester. It has been a tad quiet here at the Forum Blog but hopefully that will be changing very soon with new poetry and prose and visual art showing up here along with all things related to the magazine.
Most importantly, we have new deadlines for submissions for the magazine — March 1 for the next issue, which is of course very close so if you are interested in submitting something keep that date in mind. We will also take submissions on an ongoing basis for consideration in the blog and the fall issue (the deadline for the fall issue is October 1 by the way).
A reminder to everyone out there, the fundraiser for literary magazine will be at Hotel Utah tomorrow (October 11, 2009).
