  1. Eric, I’m glad I came across your site. When I have more time I’ll read through more of your extensive information. Thanks for being such a resource. I will put you on my blogroll. If you have the time, I’d love some feedback on my blog. It’s listed as Rich Poetry here on WordPress.

    Also, are you up for an interview? If so, I’d like to pick your brain a bit for my blog and the members of my local Poet Society.




  2. I’m not sure if you have heard of Narrative Magazine, but it is a free online magazine that is always looking for new writers. If you get a chance, check it out at http://narrativemagazine.com


  3. Good to see the blog, Eric, and keep up the good work with your poetry. I’ll get you on my reading list.


  4. Would you please add my blog to your blog list? Thank you.
