Coincidence of The Day Dep't

While Shanna Compton
of Brand New Insects
(who I know only from her blog, by the way)
was in her workshop with Harry Matthews,
I was at a poetry reading at the Bowery
Poetry Club talking with Lytle Shaw during
a break. Somehow we got to talking about
blogging, and writing journals and
Harry Matthews' name came up and
Lytle recommended Matthews' book
*The Journalist* and I enthused about his book
*20 Lines a Day*
which is one of my all time favorites.

I hope Shanna Compton
will tell us more about her
weekend workshop with
Harry Matthews and tell us
about some of the exercises
Matthews recommended.
