Joe Cooke

For some time now, I have explored British, American, Spanish and Italian literature, reading synoptic chronologies or period surveys.  I have always enjoyed reading poetry and short fiction; but I don't usually write much, because I am content to explore what is known and to share in what has just been discovered.  This keeps me busy.  I do write informally, in my own personal journals, on topics of interest. My interests include literature, language, history, art, philosophy, music. 

This year, I joined the Master Class site and took classes from Doris Kearns Goodwin, Ken Burns, Billy Collins, Neil Gaiman, David Mamet, Walter Mosley, Herbie Hancock, Futura and Steve Martin.  I did some posts in discussion groups, but haven't developed any ideas further.

When I was in college, I liked to roam the stacks, ranging further afield than the texts we were taught in our literature survey classes.  My alternative syllabus derived from M.A. Abrams' Dictionary of Literary Terms, a concise handbook for puzzled English majors.  I used the definitions and the bibliography to find out more of the history of literature, a topic that had begun to interest me, ever since I read my first chronological anthology of poetry.  Some day, I will write the story of those adventures.  

I can still remember reading Ernest Baker's History of the English Novel.  Some of the books could be read by anyone; others required more critical preparation to glean the value.  Still others were relics of discarded styles and strategies; anachronistic ephemera.   In a Borgesian sense, I tried to imagine the work of a critic/writer who disregarded these caveats to discover his own unique path through the labyrinth of literary history to evoke the immanent past within the present, our precursors (or perhaps to mythologize or falsify it). 

Then, I dared to imagine that this might someday become my story as well.   

While it seems only that I do a lot of reading, thinking and imagining, yet I hope that something may come of this someday.

Consequence addresses the human consequences and realities of war and geopolitical violence through literature and art, offering intellectual and emotional access to the experiences of combatants, victims, and witnesses. We provide the public with works and voices from around the world to promote a clearer and more nuanced understanding of what’s at stake in choosing to wage war or engage in conflict.

We are after work of high literary quality that addresses our themes. We also recognize that there is a wide range of work related to these themes, so in addition to the traditional perspectives and expereinces of war, we are also interested in works from BIPOC, the LGBTQ+ community, and other under-represented groups and/or viewpoints. Our goal is to create an inclusive and comprehensive conversation surrounding these topics.

A Anupama

I'm a poet and artist in the lower Hudson Valley of New York, not too far from NYC. I've run writing groups, taught creative writing workshops, and edited a journal for the past few years... I'd love to just join something and not be in charge! My interests at the moment are ecopoetics and ekphrastics. I also love classical Indian poetry, and translation is one of my special pet projects.

By day, I'm a community college writing center coordinator building a peer-tutoring program and poetry club. My MFA (Sewanee School of Letters, '19) thesis was a collection of historical persona poems that I'm revising to meld with more autobiographical/confessional poems in various forms. I've had a handful of online publications/acceptances for poems, translations, and a review here and there but have been intimidated to really dig in to the work of polishing and submitting.  I'm looking to build community and fit more writing into my day.

Hello! My name is Kara and I am a graduating senior from the University of California, Irvine (UCI). Poetry is the love of my life, and I feel fulfillment when reading texts that demand to be heard. My writing is published in several literary journals including The Foundationalist from Bowdoin College, New Forum from UCI, and LUCID from UCI. Though I am grateful for the opportunities I've participated in during my studies at UCI, I am experiencing a mental health crisis that is negatively paralyzing me. I am currently living like Dante at the beginning of Inferno, I've found myself in a dark forest and I am overwhelmed. I need guidance and support, I feel far removed from human connection. I hope that I can find a group here who can help me along!
