Daniel Chacon's lit arts radio show
Airing on November 13. The podcast is available here:
In this week’s Poetic License, Stacia M. Fleegal defends why she is ok with paying $250 to have her work published with BlazeVOX Publishing, a practice frowned upon by other writers.
Stacia writes, I know the furor of this issue has died down a bit, and thankfully so (for you and for the press), but I think it really blew wide open some of the prejudices and backward thinking in literary publishing, especially by some in the indie and/or online lit crowd who often seem to think they are ahead of the pack in terms of shattering taboos, innovating, etc. I still feel compelled to speak out.
Her full blog post with more detail about cooperative publishing, benefits for writers, et: http://www.staciamfleegal.com/2011/09/my-name-is-stacia-fleegal-and-i-donated.html

Author Tony Trigilio explores President Kennedy's assassination through poetry in 'History Diary.'
Tuesday marked the 48th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination. The moment has worked itself deep into the American psyche, spawning commissions, books, movies and theories all bent on uncovering what really happened that day. Author and poet Tony Trigilio was fascinated by the mystery surrounding Kennedy’s assassination. He poured over the Warren Commission Report and then, he started reading Lee Harvey Oswald’s personal diary. But he didn’t find conspiracy; he found poetry. The result was Historic Diary - his latest collection of poems.
Web extra: Tony Trigilio reads two poems from his book Historic Diary: Kiss Junie and Rachel for me, I love you, be sure to buy shoes for June, and The Manchurian Cadidate.Read more »
