From Tarzana Joe of the Hugh Hewitt show:
GreyhawkDone sir! Mudville readers are encouraged to be on the lookout for examples of poetry from those in uniform. I know I heard a lot of talented rappers in Baghdad - and others who could string together verses too.
I read your poem on the air 4/8. Went well. Hope you heard it. I've got two weeks to get the word out to as many poets out there as you can help me reach. Can you help? Perhaps you can forward the following to some of your circle....
The Hugh Hewitt Show is a syndicated center-right political talk show on AM radio in the US. Each month , we drop politics for a segment and do about fifteen minutes on a poet or poetry theme. On April 26 we are planning a segment on poetry written by active duty military. I am trying to contact as many milblogs as I can and get contributions and permission to read them on the air. If I get enough, I am even thinking of trying to get a publisher interested in doing a book. I am looking for everything from hip-hop to lyrics to straight poetry.
Send poem submissions with a short note giving permission to read on the air to
Also, please pass this e-mail around to as many milblogs and active military as you can. I'm a poet-pundit on a deadline.
Readers note: please don't submit entries to Mudville - send to email@example.com.
