Re: Muncie

Korte gesprekken met afgrijselijke mannen Dutch Edition David Foster Wallace weet lezers moeiteloos mee te voeren naar plekken waar geen enkele andere schrijver ook maar in de buurt komt, zo ook in Korte gesprekken met afgrijselijke mannen. Rated 4. As a writer, I believe whole-heartedly that I must trust myself to follow my inspiration, but the paths I travel for that inspiration can become repetitive, narrow, and self-serving—yet this can be very difficult to realize. We fall into ruts in our writing. Q: On the flip side, how has your own experience as a poet seeking publication informed your business model and editorial policies at Omnidawn?

A: I do bring my poet's-mind to the work of decision-making. I remind myself not to just take books that will easily align with our previous successes, nor simply ask myself "what is the market for this book and how will this book increase readership for our press. One of the most important poetic strategies that I use as a writer, and one that is probably most antithetical to any business model of publishing, is that I trust my body to help me proceed in a poem.

When I'm writing, and when I'm choosing manuscripts to publish, if I feel a kind of shiver, a physical tingle of energy, then I know the work is strong. This might hasten me, speed up my writing or reading, or it might slow me down—but regardless, it is attuning me to the fact that I'm tapping into a new or significant movement.

Thrill-Bent by Jan Richman

I might call the feeling a kind of fear as well as excitement. Q: Tell me about the contest screening process. Who judges your entries, and how many are sent on to the final judge? How do you pick a guest judge for each year's contest? A: Every manuscript is read by at least two "screeners", and those screeners are Omnidawn's Senior Poetry Editor and our seven Poetry Editors.

We don't have interns read submissions. It's important to us that our editors do this work. We believe that our editors have been trained to be open to a wider range of interest—we pride ourselves on being open in our attunement to quality. Those screeners give the manuscript a level score and a comment. Then, all of the manuscripts are read again by at least one other editor who also has the authority to move a manuscript "up" in its score.

Editors are looking for works that might be moved up, never "down". None of these editors have access to the identities of the submitters, and we are careful to remove all acknowledgements pages and identifying information. After all reading is completed, then the full group of poetry editors meet for a long day and discuss the manuscripts that have elicited interest. At this meeting, we select the semi-finalists to be sent to the judge.

The number of semi-finalists we send depends on the judge's preference. We always recommend that a healthy number of manuscripts go to the judge.

Some judges will read as many as 30, others prefer fewer, maybe 20, or the number of their choice. But we always work this out with the judge when we select the judge, so that there will be no surprises. The judge then selects the winner and five finalists no ranking order for the finalists. If the judge wishes to see additional manuscripts, she or he may request them; the judge is not, however, permitted to request specific manuscripts.

Colleagues, students, and close friends of the judge are not eligible to compete. Past or present Omnidawn staff and interns are also not eligible to compete. The judge is not allowed to choose manuscripts that present a conflict of interest. Ken and I choose the judges based upon our appreciation for their writing.

Rae Armantrout, Cole Swensen. Q: Who are some of your favorite authors classic or contemporary and what can potential entrants learn from them? A: I am a very eclectic reader! I could list all of the authors Omnidawn publishes, but I will not put any in this list, since that would be unfair. From earlier centuries, I return often to Rilke, both the Snow and the Stephen Mitchell translations.

I love Celan too, the Hamburger translations. I love Hopkins, the wonderful music of his work. In more contemporary work, I am an avid reader of so many poets. Their books are on my night stand so that I can open them for solace and hope. My copies of their books are very marked up, from my need to underline favorite passages.
