Poet on the Campaign Trail

Here's the latest Ask A Poet, pretty timely. I also features a query from our very own Jaqi Holland:

Soapbox domination continues. Check out my latest bit in the Weekly Dig, all about Boston authenticity, before some guy from Southie beats me up, or a wandering horde of college students projectile vomits in my general direction.

I'm sorry. That was a little gross, even for me.

writing and stitching

It's my first time posting here. It seemed high time I do so... especially considering recent events. 

About 3 months ago I started working as the assistant editor at Crochet Today magazine. For those of you who had Column Writing with me and recall the recurring theme in my columns, you won't be surprised when I say this job is pretty much perfect for me. It's just me and the editor-in-chief on the editorial staff, which means I am lucky enough to participate in every aspect of putting the magazine together, from conceptualizing to hiring freelancers to writing to editing. The first issue with my name on the masthead (woo!) goes on newsstands this week and I have a short column in it about an up-and-coming crochet designer, Cal Patch. I also wrote the whole product review section, which isn't exactly a column, but it got me another byline, so yay!

The magazine can sometimes be found at B&N, but is easiest to get in craft stores. We aren't publishing editorial content on our website at this time, but maybe someday...

Article Published

Hi, everyone!

It's been a while since I last posted anything. I was in the Column Writing class in the year of 04/05 (I can't remember if it was Fall or Spring). I just wanted to pass along that I have an article published in OurState Magazine. This magazine gives an overview of the cultural, historical, and other elements of North Carolina living. Since I grew up in and currently live in NC, I've been pitching articles to this magazine. It's my second publication.

While my name is featured in the table of contents on the online version of the magazine, the article itself is not linked.

I wrote in a section titled "For the Day" about a nearby small town by the name of Elizabethtown, and a state park, Jones Lake, that is less than five miles from Elizabethtown. The article is "Town and Country" and my byline is Lee Royal. I give an iteniary of what one can do for the day in this part of the state--places to eat, shop, hike, and more.

Hope all of you are doing great!
