Good evening, blog readers! I hope you’ve had a lovely week and an even lovelier weekend. Now that Sunday is here, it’s time to look back at the posts that have gone up on the blog this week. But first, this is the last few days you’ll have to submit your art, fiction, nonfiction, and poetry to the Jet Fuel Review. If you’re interested in submitting your work for the next issue, you can visit the Jet Fuel Review‘s website. The submission period closes on October 15th, so submit your work now if you’re interested! Of course, you can also read the last issue of the Review right now.
We began our week at the blog, as usual, with some Writing Advice. This week I wrote about National Novel Writing Month, a topic that is near and dear to my heart. I highly encourage to try it out this year! We also had a discussion post about inspiration. As potent as the feeling of writer’s block can be, the feeling inspiration can be just as strong. The featured poem this week was Once it Stops by Florence Fogelin.
This week, we had a ton of new and exciting blogs from our editors, as well as some new guest bloggers. Sabrina Parr, one of our Poetry Editors, began her ‘Book Corner‘ posts by reviewing Rosemary Clement-Moore’s Texas Gothic. Miguel Gonzales, one of our new film bloggers, wrote his first post about Kevin Smith and one way that he involved his viewers in the process of filmmaking. Mike Egan, our other new film blogger, wrote about Wes Anderson and his use of aspect ratio in The Grand Budapest Hotel. And Dominique Dusek wrote another installment of her Shakespeare blog, this time about A Midsummer Night’s Dream and gender roles.
I hope you’ve been enjoying the recent posts here at the Jet Fuel Review blog, and I hope that you stick around for more!
