What's Coming Up in 2013

| No TrackBacks
For a while earlier this year I had thought that my poetry reprint blog, Rhymes Rudely Strung, would end its run this year.  It's been a fair amount of work and my vague plans for 2013 didn't fit with the current structure. I had come to realise that I had been neglecting my long-term work on the writings of C.J. Dennis and had decided to concentrate solely on his work.

And then, of course, I had the idea that maybe I could combine the two: the poetry blog and C.J. Dennis.

So 2013 will be a full year of Dennis: each day I will be publishing a new poem by the poet on the anniversary of the day on which it was first published.  There shouldn't be a problem with this as Dennis published so much poetry during his working life that I have multiple items to choose from each day, though I do have to admit I was worried about one day in early January when I could only find one piece.

Most of the poems I publish next year will not have been seen since their original publication which I think is a bit sad.  Hopefully you'll find something you can enjoy here next year, and, just maybe, gain a bit of an appreciation of the range of Dennis's material.  If either of those occurs I'll be happy.

Have a good festive season.
