more on the merge

I got some interesting comments on my 'e/merging' post. Including one from Jessica Smith, the 'other' editor of Outside Voices an anthology of ‘young and emerging’ poets. Cool.

Jessica says that they're getting submissions from poets outside the US, and she says "... basically, anything goes as long as it's good or interesting."

So anyone who identifies as emerging should think about going for it. Be good, be interesting and do it. Australians, New Zealanders, anyone ...

Thinking on it from another angle, it's good that these opportunities for getting past national boundaries are opening up. To get out of your own poetry war zone and cross over border constructs with no passport controls.
