Twitter issue of OCHO online now!

On May 11, the Poets on Twitter post appeared here on the Modern Confessional blog. The next day, Didi Menendez -- founder of OCHO and MiPOesias literary magazines -- and I discussed doing a special edition of OCHO featuring poets who appeared on the list of Twitter poets. In less than three weeks, OCHO #24 Featuring Twitter Poets is now online. You will be able to order print copies soon. 

This is the power of Twitter and the Internet. In just a few short weeks, we have a literary magazine filled with some fine poets from all over the world. I think that's what tickles me the most. So, who's in the issue? Here are the contributors: Ivy Alvarez, Patty Paine, Anne Haines, Matthew Hittinger, Christine Klocek-Lim, Pris Campbell, Nancy Devine, JS van Buskirk, Kate Evans, Alex Dimitrov, Rachel Barenblat, Saeed Jones, Stacie Boschma, Ray Succre, Marie-Elizabeth Mali, Cheryl Snell, Andrew Demcak, Karen Head, Pamela Johnson Parker, Rosemary Nissen-Wade, Will Kenyon, Sherry Chandler, AnnMarie Eldon, Christine Swint, Deb Scott, Scott Edward Anderson, Samuel Peralta, Emily A. Benton, Shann Palmer, Montgomery Maxton, Christopher Hennessy, Jackie Sheeler, Peggy Eldridge-Love, Tammy Knot, Luisa A. Igloria, Robert Lee Brewer, C. Cleo Creech and Cole Krawitz.

Enjoy the poems and follow these folks on Twitter. You will see their @names next to their by-lines. In the spirit of Twitter, poet bios are 140 characters. Many thanks to Didi, who made my first guest-editing gig such a breeze.

I love this online viewing format they use. But also looking forward to ordering a couple of copies when they go live at amazon.
Thanks, Collin and Didi!

It looks great!
I really love it! Such a good read (even apart from me, lol) and so beautifully presented. Many thanks to you both for this initiative, and to issuu - an interesting site I was previously unaware of - for making it possible.

Mother Mercy, this is cool. I'm on Twitter, but I've treated it like a unloaded gun at a firing range. Should capitalize on it, I see.

Time to learn to tweet. :)

I'll link to this from the TEA, of course.

Good work!
