Rhythm and Meter in English Poetry

The next month or two of work on Xanga 2.0 is going to be busy, so I wanted to share with everyone a roadmap of how we’re thinking about things! We’re dividing the work on this project into four basic phases. Phase 1. As described here, we’ve imported over every account that we have on Xanga over to the new system so that anyone who could sign into Xanga can still sign into Xanga 2.0. Finally and most important of all, we’ve imported over 2 million blogs from the old system. * We’ve archived the blogs of the hundreds of thousands of blogs where the user has logged in in the past 5 years and has at least two subscribers. * We did an additional set of archives for 200k users who had logged in the past year and had at least 10 blogs. * We’ve also archived the blogs of every single user that’s ever been premium at any point in the past… And of course, a lot of you guys archived your own blogs using the old Xanga archive generator. Phase 2. Phase 3. Phase 4.
The Adroit Journal Submission Manager - Poetry (HIGH SCHOOL AND COLLEGE)
What is it? As a way of maintaining and extending our deep-rooted commitment to emerging writers, The Adroit Journal’s Summer Mentorship Program aims to pair experienced Adroit editors and staff with high school students (as of the 2013-2014 academic year) interested in learning more about the creative writing processes of drafting, redrafting and editing. The program is free to all, and will cater to the literary genres of poetry and prose (short story, creative nonfiction, etc.). The aim of the mentorship program is not formalized instruction, but rather an individualized, flexible, and often informal correspondence. Applicants should possess firm work ethic and some familiarity with the writing and workshop process, and should be comfortable with receiving (and, to some extent, giving) commentary and critique. Please note that this opportunity will not offer academic credit (this is a friendship, not a class!) How do I apply? The Selection Process

10 beautiful sacred spots
Mount Parnassus (Photo: age fotostock / SuperStock) When we modern folks visit a beautiful natural site, the experience may evoke a sense of peace, a feeling of awe, or just the need to snap a million photos. If you'd like to see your images on Yahoo! Travel, join now and submit your own! For our ancient forebears, though, these places were so much more. From the mythological homes of powerhouse gods like Zeus and Shiva to the serene spot where the mortal Buddha achieved enlightenment, these are the places of legends. Mount Parnassus, Greece Towering above Delphi in central Greece, this limestone mountain looms large in Greek mythology. The three Corycian Nymphs, each of whom was romanced by a major god, were born of springs located on Parnassus, and the mountain was also the setting for many minor myths.
