Congratulations to our new blog writers! The following lovely people will now be joining the West 10th team and keeping you updated on all things literary: Steff Yotka, Michael Chimento, Seamus Mullin, Cate Mahoney, and Farzana Khaleda.In other blog news, we received a number of submissions to the first blog contest--"steal a little"--and are in the process of selecting a winner. The winning poem will be posted on the blog on Friday. In the meantime, you should all get started on our next challenge, a villanelle (in honor of Dylan Thomas' birthday). The deadline for villanelle submissions is Monday, November 1st.
