I think I’ll start sharing a couple interesting news items from around the web related to poetry and, to a lesser extent, writing in general. Cheers.
- Federico Garcia Lorca was buried in a mass grave in 1936 as merely one result of the Spanish Civil War. Seems the family has agreed to allow excavations of his presumed burial site. Can you say “Zombie Lorca”?
- The IMPAC longlist is now available. Some Canadian talent in here. I draw your attention to Patrick Lane here.
- xkcd is a brilliant web comic that posts a couple times a week on both random and currently significant topics. Here’s one for fans of LOTR, Star Wars, and a couple other big name movies.
