My latest venture

Be careful about following a Twitter account. You might wind up taking it over.

Apparently I did not have enough quixotic literary crusades on the Internet, so now I have taken up another one. The guy running @surrealpoems on Twitter, Ethan Yang, who had inherited it from founder Brooks Lampe, got tired of it and wanted to concentrate on his other Twitter accounts.

I had been following @surrealpoems for awhile (I have liked Surrealist poetry for many years), and when Ethan asked for people willing to adopt it, I was the only one who expressed interest. He handed it over to me before I had time to come to my senses.

I intend to take this task seriously and use @surrealpoems to promote interest in contemporary poetry in general and Surrealist poetry in particular. (I am still trying to figure out how to do that. It may take awhile, but I'm working on it.) I won't neglect this blog, but I may have to reduce the amount of time I spend on the Prometheus Award.
