Honoring Baltimore Poet With Her Poetry

In honor of Baltimore poet Dyane Fancey, Baltimore Fishbowl featured an article, “Baltimore Poet Dyane Fancey Dies, Leaves Us with Perfect Poem,” discussing her poem “Multitasking.” The article wonderfully analyzes Fancey’s poem and, despite Fancey’s passing, reminds us death “is as good a reason as any not to worry, but instead simply to “Be here, / Here, now.”

Fancey’s work includes “A Religion of Skin,” published by The New Poets Series (now BrickHouse Books). For more information about Fancey, read The Baltimore Sun‘s article on the poet here.

Update on BrickHouse Books status:

Clarinda Harriss, BhB Director, is happy to be able to announce an end to the temporary hiatus on receiving new manuscripts.  As of January 2014, it’s business as usual here at the BrickHouse.

And it’s not too soon for people writing from a LGBT perspective to be thinking about submitting a chapbook manuscript for the 2014 Stonewall Chapbook Competition. Deadline is August 15, 2014.
