Happy New Year

In announcement on January 1, 2009 at 10:01 pm

Happy New Year to all.

Where there is life there is hope, joy and sorrow too, but there is hope; hope for a New Year – to make things new, to take the cleave forward, onward, upward.

If I could see the future it would be too much for me, so I see the present and learn from the past; the future is there to be explored.

Some recent developments:

  • December Cleave of the Month was jointly won by Dennis Kelly with Spontaneous thing and Janet Hamill with KEROUAC.
  • KEROUAC has been nominated by Bowery Books for a 2008 Pushcart Prize.
  • The Cleave Anthology is coming together (submit your cleaves to be considered for publication in the Anthology).
  • The Editor will read a cleave poem (and a prose poem) in April 2009 at The Poetry Society (UK) Cafe in conjunction with 5 other poets and The EMFEB Orchestra in a poetry-music fusion (cleave?) evening. (Further details later.)


Happy New Year.

May this year amaze us all.
