Wonderful ideas, suggestions, actions to take in support of poetry!

Trish Hopkinson

Great guest blog post up today from Dick Allen… the 13 ways to support poetry below include what to ask your local library, how to support poets you like, and quotes from others in the lit mag industry.

Dick Allen has published nine collections of poems including, The Zen Master Poems, which will be published by Wisdom, Inc., one of the world’s leading Buddhist publishing houses, in Summer, 2016.  I’ve been a Zen Buddhist for over 50 years.  I’ve been publishing Zen Master poems for the last twenty years.  My Buddhism leans toward “crazy Zen” and is quite consciously filled with American references and allusions, including some to bluegrass and others to railroad crossings and Johnny Cash and frisbees. http://zenpoemszenphotosdickallen.net
