  3. It should go without saying that no one goes into poetry for money.
    Americans genuinely love poetry. In a new piece on The Millions, Kate Angus explores the struggles of poets and publishers to translate that appreciation into sales. (via millionsmillions)

  4. You found your way into my soul; I trapped you in a jar.
    And as you lay with me the carnival sways.
    Semen stains the mattress and I turn out the lights;
    We lay naked in this mistaken act of love.
    from Unload My Head by Ryan Horner, published in RCC MUSE 2014 issue

  7. I ordered another scotch. I lit her cigarettes and somehow knew she believed in abortion. Perhaps even had one. She liked ice cream in the wintertime. And somewhere in her past she actually had a relationship that ended well.

  8. Here it is! Our first MUSE Monday! This Monday we feature Writ Large Press and talk to Chiwan Choi from Writ Large about their #90for90 event series.

    MUSE: When you all at Writ Large Press thought up #90for90, where did it originally come from?

    Chiwan: Well, one thing was, when it wasn’t planned for this space but the other space, we knew we had three months, so what do we do for the three months to maximize traffic? We thought well, have events every night. Then we were thinking about the 30 for 30 project that ESPN does and that’s how we made it #90for90.

    M: Did you guys have a plan for a certain amount of the events or you were just thinking whatever we can get we’ll just put our feelers out and fill our calendar?

    C: For some reason I had no doubt we could fill our 90 events. As soon as we put out a call we got at least 200 emails in the next couple days.

    M: Did you see any creativity when it came to the process of planning (finding a venue, filling the calendar, organizing the events, etc…) #90for90? 

    C: Yeah of course, our mantra has been: The project is the project. I was telling people earlier today it’s become like a 90 day performance art project. 

    #90for90 is going on right now. If you’d like more details just look up DTLAB, Writ Large Press or #90for90. Remember if you wish to be featured on a MUSE Monday send us a message on Facebook. We look forward to hearing from you and thanks again to Chiwan Choi for engaging his MUSE!

  9. Heather, you’re grown so I can tell you
    in those days nobody knew what sex looked like,
    not like now, what you see in movies and in the ads
    on the sides of city buses. They just tasted it
    in the air. It hummed on their tongues;
    their nostrils flared. And each person
    learned in the dark.
    Rochelle Jewel Shapiro, from her poem “How Your Grandparents Met”, published in the MUSE Spring 2013 issue
