Call for Submissions – Festival #22

The April edition of the Festival of the Trees will be our first to appear on a non-Anglophone blog.

Send all tree-related links, regardless of language of origin, to arvoresvivas [at] gmail [dot] com by March 28, or use the online submission form.

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.
