I just wanted to put the word out to anybody at piptalk who might have a livejournal account, and be interested in participating in a community that a friend and I have started, called "New Formalism." It's based on the revival of classical verse forms, and their incorporation into contemporary poetry. This is important today, because of how ascendant free-verse has become---we're a community of people who would like to learn about and use older, formal elements in our poetry, to try and preserve the beauty of the past.
Well, enough plug. I know quite a few piptalk members who are interested in formal verse, and I'd like to invite anyone who's interested to come and check it out.
