New Poems at SRPR/ My Wifey Be a Blog Boss

Posted in Fambly, poetry with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on July 6, 2017 by ndemske


Believe it or not, I am still writing and ever so infrequently publishing poems.  Just wanted to give a shout out to Spoon River Poetry Review for publishing two of my poems recently (“This is Not a Prayer” and “Back That Badge Up”), in the midst of a whole bunch of other dope poets I love, including even a few of my favorite Wisco wordsmiths.  It’s not available online, but buy it or tell your local library what’s up and have them subscribe.

So there’s that.  And that is glorious.

The real writer in the family, though, has been killing it lately.


My brilliant, hilarious, stupid AF wife, Angela Malone–who is an Interior Designer–has been blogging for a small design firm she works for called Kelle Dame Design.  Check out their blog page here.  She did the last 3 posts (as of the writing of this blog post, anyways).

Also, though, she’s got her own website now, which also has its own blog component (only one post on that one so far).  The website is called Projeckt Chic–a nod to the Cash Money Millionaires radio edit classic; a song which is honestly just too basic for me to even want to link to it here.  But the website, anyways, can be found here.  Click the blog tab to see her nonsense there, too.

And bam.  There you go.  All the nonsense that’s fit to read.  Enjoy!

I submit to the fact that I love this completely. Thanks to Boston Review for bringing my attentions to it. Enjoy.

Rescue Press Open Reading Period

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , on June 24, 2010 by ndemske

I just sort of stumbled upon this website of a press called “Rescue Press” and realized that it’s run by two friends of mine, Caryl Pagel and Daniel Khalastchi, in Milwaukee– awesome people and, from what work of theirs I’ve heard, killer poets.  The site is dope.  I don’t think they’ve ever even told me about this, unless I forgot.  It’s probably that darn poet’s modesty thing.  Well, either way, they have a free open reading period right now that accepts (actually is exclusive to) electronic submissions.  I was just recently so geeked that Action Yes did this and now here’s another substantive press following those steps…perhaps it’s becoming a norm.  Either way, if you’ve got a book length manuscript of practically any genre or form, you should send it to them.  So there.  Don’t say I never blah blah bletcetera.
