Northography Going On Hiatus

Britt Fleming of Northography.Com recently announced that the innovative website for Minnesota poets will be shut down at the end of the month. We'll still be able to access work in the archives, but the interactive element: the stimulus/response and comments will all be deactivated. This could be for about a year, possibly longer.

That's unfortunate, but given the explanation Fleming provides, understandable under his circumstances. www.Northography.Com has been a positive part of the Minnesota literary community for several years now. In fact, many early versions of my poems that appear in my book BARROW and On the Other Side of the Eye got their start here, although, I must confess it's also been a few months since I last updated it.  

Northography is a quirky site, but has been a great resource, especially for many friends who first met via the popular Whistling Shade literary journal, also based in Minnesota. Good luck, Britt, and I look forward to the next time that we can add new work to the growing body of language and spirit within those e-pages.
