Come one, come all!

It's not too late to reserve a spot in the first-ever Festival of the Trees! I'll be hosting it at Via Negativa on Saturday, July 1, so please get links to me no later than June 30. Send 'em to bontasaurus (at) yahoo (dot) com with "Festival of the Trees" in the subject line. For more information on what we're looking for, please see the About page.

About Dave Bonta

I'm the author of several books of poetry, including Ice Mountain: An Elegy, Breakdown: Banjo Poems, and Odes to Tools, but my real work is at my long-running literary blog Via Negativa, where I'm currently creating erasure poems from every entry of the Diary of Samuel Pepys. I'm also the editor and publisher of Moving Poems, a blog showcasing the best poetry videos on the web.

  1. I can hardly wait!!! Thanks for creating a coordinating page. 🙂

  2. Looking forward to seeing what comes out of this.

  3. Me too, Kelly! Thanks for plugging it on your own blog — and please contribute something, if you get a chance.

  4. You’ve always looked to me like a grown-up Christopher Robin in that photo. If that is you, Dave! The tree, of course, an ancient wisdom towering over you. Pooh Bear, well, it’s all about Pooh Bear in the end. Peckerwood Pooh Bear.

    On with the festival!

  5. Is it me? Well, it’s a photo of me, all right. I love your analysis of it.
