EL POBRE NEWS


so i wonder if you wonder what is up with the mouse as of late? here's some news for y'all:

**kyle and i are meeting tonight at our usual coffee place to talk about #3. i think, give or take a submission promised here or there, we have all of the submissions and are about to start the long, fun part of reading and discussing it all. it's definately my favorite part of the whole lit-mag process. we'll also talk about the cover, the cover party, and hopefully set some deadlines, including a FINAL deadline for #3 to go to press.

tho we hope it's been part of our charm, we are hoping to be a bit more organized as we go on.

thanks to everyone who sent us work, art and writing alike!

**the new salon (yet un-named--i'm still pining to call it the Dragons Are Goodlooking Salon) at my house last sunday night (tho it will be nomadic--next one at Shonni's) was awesome. thanks to everyone for coming. we talked poetics, drank wine and saki, and ate lots of cheese. i love poets. just put out some cheese, eventually someone will show up at your house with a manuscript.

**there are alot of amazing readings happening in SF right now. i'll post some upcoming ones when i can--a good source for those in the meantime can be found at www.artifactseries.blogspot.com
also check out kyle's blog: www.werdenfield.blogspot.com for excellent links to other poets and projects.

**in other news, el pobre mouse has actually bought a domain on the internet, elpobremouse.com. we are not very .com-y, we are really more .org-y (or orgy) but what the hell. thanks muchly to jack and the guys at knack design for hosting us and basically putting a fire under the ass of the whole website thing. so blogging days at this site are relatively numbered--though i'm sure it'll take us a while to get it going, we be so sluggin.

much love,
sara

Hello. All submissions for el pobre mouse #3 are due on October 15th, less than a week off. This is a s*o*f*t deadline. Meaning that it takes us a few days to move into our editing, so being a l*i*t*t*l*e late is no cause for grand concern. But we do get a little scared, so help us out and heed the call.
A couple posts below you'll find what we're looking for. Namely, your work.
Hope you like our new look.
