Hello, blog readers! I hope your week has been a good one. First things first — a new issue of the Jet Fuel Review is out and available for you to read! If you want to see the amazing poetry, fiction, nonfiction, and art included in issue #11, simply visit the Jet Fuel Review website. The new issue includes a special collection of bouts-rimé poetry, (which you can read more about here) and it’s also available in eBook format for easy reading. Be sure to check it out!
Now, to recap some of our more recent posts. In terms of writing advice, there is only one new post to recap. This past week, I wrote about finding inspiration in the work of others and using that to create your own work. Some poems recently featured here on the blog include Unsurpassed by Autumn McClintock and Little Design by Jamaal May.
For your listening pleasure, we have several new playlists through the Jet Fuel Jukebox. If you’re feeling nostalgic, check out the Throwback Thursday: Dance Edition playlist for all your old favorites. You can also find more music in this past week’s playlist. But if you’re looking for a podcast instead, be sure to check out the two most recent episodes of Infinite Canvas here and here.
Our most recent “Alum in the Spotlight” post featured Kendra Hadnott, a graduate of Lewis University who is now an author, freelance writer, educator, and blogger. Be sure to check out that post for more about Kendra.
In the past few weeks, Haley Renison has written two more posts for her “Poetic Playlist” series. In one, she analyzed “Buzzcut Season” by Lorde, and in the other she discussed “Migraine” by Twenty One Pilots. In addition, Michael Lane posted a review of the film Hush.
Finally, we’ve had some different types of posts here on the blog recently. First, we posted a Student Feature last week, which consisted of a film review for The Revenant from Lewis University student Phil Siddu. Secondly, we posted a Faculty Feature, which was a short story entitled “Four Points and a Necklace,” written by Lewis University adjunct professor Sharon Houk.
That’s all for now, folks! I hope you enjoy the coming week.
