Hello, and welcome to another week of the Southern Indiana Review blog. It has been such a busy week and weekend here. We all spent a lot of time logging submissions and sending out rejection letters, which is not the most fun part of the job, but it definitely needs to be done. Editing brochures, creating posters, and even occasionally reading over submissions to see if we can offer any constructive criticism are by far my favorite (and the most educational) parts of my internship here. And it’s also fun to learn how to focus with the ever-looming sounds of bulldozing going on right outside our door.
And much more importantly, tonight is the second RopeWalk Reading Series event. Today’s featured reader is the 2007 Mary C. Mohr Poetry Award winner, Kristine Anderson. I’m sure I’ll be able to update this later in the week with photos and stories from the reading, and hopefully there will be a good turnout. We’re all really looking forward to seeing this amazing poet read her work. I had the job of working on the poster advertising this reading, which was really a lot of fun to work on. (I chose to go with a "skin" theme, since that was the title of her award-winning poem.) I really like when my job doesn’t feel like a job at all because I get to have so much fun with it.
