A suggestion for NaPoWriMo:
Didi Menendez writes: 'May I suggest that during National Poetry Month that instead of just thinking about your own poetry that you also consider writing a review (at least one a week = 4 reviews) of someone else's poetry (book, individual poem, magazine, journal, broadside, etc.).'

Oranges & Sardines:
Menendez Publishing introduces Oranges & Sardines, the new print magazine dedicated to spanning the two genres of poetry and art in an effort to fuse both communities in a fresh and exciting way.

The staff of Oranges & Sardines are poets and artists who are dedicated not only to publishing the best content submitted in both genres, but also to the aesthetic appearance of our magazine. We welcome submissions from the established as well as the emerging and unknown.

Who are we? A small press dedicated to breaking new poets, as well as new work by established poets (which is how we plan on breaking the new poets). Our format is this: Each book or pamphlet will feature the work of two poets/writers that our editor deems compatible/coordinating/ collaborative in some way. The two mini-chapbooks will be bound together in a single volume, although as upside-down mirror images of each other(yes, like the Speigel catalog), ideally with the two poets meeting in the middle. In this way, we have our adventure and our further adventure. Two "things," that operate separately, but are made to communicate.

Vice verse:
The "madam" behind the Poetry Brothel is Stephanie Berger, 23, an M.F.A. student in creative writing at The New School. A petite redhead with piercing eyes, she can usually be found either sashaying through the crowd kissing cheeks and pimping out her harem, or screaming obscenities into a megaphone when patrons fail to quiet down for an open performance.

Poetry couples: Let me count the ways...:
Are partnerships between poets a good thing? When poets live together, do they bring out the worst or the best in one another? Do they have to draw blood or be blighted by unidentified lung disease or end in suicide? Must they be passionate but painful, creatively productive but emotionally destructive?
