Hello, blog readers! We have a lot of posts to recap from the last couple of weeks, but I first want to thank anyone who submitted their work to the Jet Fuel Review recently. The spring reading submission is now closed. Our editors are hard at work and you should be hearing from them soon. In the meantime, feel free to check out the most recent issue of the Jet Fuel Review, or browse our past issues. Now, let’s see what our bloggers have been up to recently.
If you want some writing advice, check out these recent posts on the topic. In the past few weeks, I’ve written about the inner editor that we all have and how to best utilize it. To help you out even more with the editing process, I posted about some steps for editing. These might help you get started! Recently featured poems here on the blog include Morning by Alan Gillis and The Iraqi Curator’s PowerPoint by Philip Metres. If you want to learn more about another member of the Jet Fuel team, you can check out our most recent “Meet the Editors” post, which featured Bianca Apato, our Assistant Poetry Editor, Fiction Editor, and Special Section Editor.
Of course, our bloggers/editors have been posting a lot as well! Michael Cotter has posted two new installments of his “What Are You Watching?” series. He recently talked about “Younger,” from TV Land, and “Young & Hungry” from ABC Family. If you’re interested in finding some new shows to watch, be sure to check out his posts! In her weekly book review posts, Sabrina Parr has featured Rose Bush by Michael Jaffe and The Maze Runner by James Dashner.
Our film bloggers have also been keeping us updated on the world of the silver screen. Mike Egan recently posted his analysis of Kinji Fukasaku’s “Battle Royale.” Miguel Gonzalez wrote about one of Disney’s latest movies, “Big Hero 6” and the strides it has made for diversity. And Michael Lane has continued to write about the “Nightmare on Elm Street” sequels. Be sure to check out his latest post!
If you’re interested in phobias, Jessica Jordan has posted about a new one: hippopotomonstrosesquideliophobia. Want to know what that impossibly long word means? Click through to read Jessica’s full post! In Dominique Dusek’s latest “Before They Were Famous” post, she profiled one of the most well-known authors of this generation — J.K. Rowling. And, in something of a coincidence, Kelly Lyons’ most recent “Book Bucket List” featured the Harry Potter series!
I hope you’ve been enjoying our content here at the Jet Fuel blog. Stay tuned for more posts!
