Hey, kids, some months back, a friend and fellow member of Poets United, River Urke, along with some of her talented friends and fellow staff members, started a way cool online art and literary journal called The River Journal.
It comes out every Friday, featuring the talent of many poets, artists, photographers. Each Friday it focusses on timely and thought-provoking topics. It took off right away, and has been growing fast ever since.
Now they have added an offshoot: The Literary Lounge, which offers slam poetry, as well as audio, video, and multimedia poetry performances and contests.
Any of you interested in slam poetry, contests and multimedia presentations might like to check it out. They are a young, active and very Now group, with great energy and new ideas.
