Sharing 35 Poems (and One Essay)
In the process of redesigning my website, I decided to take the plunge and formatted 35 of my poems - making them available in a variety of formats: PDF, HTML, TXT and DOC. There's even a ZIP file that contains every format. All of the poems are released under a CC BY-NC license.

This is a pretty scary thing for me, honestly. It's super daunting, and I'm slightly freaked out as I go about announcing this. I've spent a lot of time on these poems over the years, and feel very protective of them. But I'm slowly trying to get my head to understand that these poems are not valuable because of their scarcity.

I'm quite fond of these guys, and even if you're not into poetry... my hope is you'll swing by and take a peek. I'd like to think that most of my stuff is pretty accessible.

Additionally, I've also have posted up an essay I wrote called Felix + Dzintra + Queensr├┐che, which got included in an anthology called Cassette From My Ex a few years ago. It's also available under the same CC license, and in the same formats.

Thanks for the kind words! I remembered seeing your Make No Wonder project previously, but didn't give it a serious go until last night. Lost a good chunk of time exploring around!

Haha, awesome! I've been focussing more on poetry lately, so I enjoyed seeing your project.
