Halloween 2015: “Midnight Meeting” by David L. Harrison and The Resident Ghoul

BLA BLA! It’s that time of year again, when kiddies of all ages, but especially non-calendar-reading five-year-olds, pester the living daylights out of their parents with the incessant question “Is it Halloween yet?” and zombie writers enter Susanna Hill’s Halloweensie contest. The guidelines this year are: no more than 100 words the words costume, dark, and haunt must appear […]

Poems by Renee, Poetry videos 53 Comments by Renee M. LaTulippe

Blame my teachers… …for making me a poet. It’s National Teacher Appreciation Week, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to share an essay I wrote a couple of years ago when I was waxing nostalgic about my childhood and my poetic beginnings. This is also in answer to some recent exclamations to the effect […]
