Firstly a HUGE thank you to LaMonaca for hosting what has been a rather encouraging and thought provoking workshop. In fact, as you will see below, LaMonaca has written two extensive discussion guides based on the results of this workshop. Theyre an excellent read for anyone who writes poetry, no matter where your strengths lie.
The was a wonderful slice of critique again, in particular GrimEden deserves a mention having commented and critiqued on a large percentage of the entries with some quite in

With both of our staff members concentrating on the nasty old NaNoWriMo, were expecting a lot of our members are too. However despite this, we are pleased to see again some very strong entries, some of the strongest for what was a positively difficult workshop task and a great grasp of the existentialist style. Well done to everyone who pariciapted.
There wasnt one person who stood out for critique this time, however we want to say a huge thank you to those who spend the time to look at peoples submissions to each workshop. Were a
Deviousness Award November 2008With a record level of nominations and suggestions on an almost daily basis, it would be hard to ignore the community call to recognise such a fine example of a deviant as snowmask.Deviousness Award November 2008 by fourteenthstar
Her constant presence since the formative years of deviantART has never wavered, demonstrating a natural ability to seek out and motivate those in need. Katie's beautifully delicate artworks are elegant and instantly recognisable due to her finely tuned creative style, a clear reflection of her personality.
With a multitude of journals which are thought provoking, funny and resourceful, it's impossible not to be touched by such a bright light in our community. Congratulations Katie!
I can't believe five years have passed so quickly without you, Pip--and yet, they still seem slow when compared to the years I had with you. Wherever you are, I hope I'm making you proud.

I ache when the world does, and maybe that's a bit too much ego, and maybe that's just a little too close to cowardice, but it's the putting in rather than the putting on that makes another's shoes uncomfortable. Empathy isn't a promise to feel as another feels, to have walked as another's walked. Empathy is the understanding that I ache, and you ache, and it's the aching where we meet--rather than the road that brought us to it. I don't know your pain, and you don't know mine, but that's okay. We don't have to share an injury to acknowledge a wound.
You may call me Bill or Pip. I'm a twenty-something editor, a self-professed punctuation junkie with a penchant for words, and a Catholic. I am also a very private, shy homosexual living my day-to-day between New York City and Oxford.|
I like talking about sex, politics, books, relationships, religion, grammar, philosophy, literature, music, baseball and football. I have an old obsession with black and white movies and anything noir, and a true appreciation for Jimmy Stewart, Audrey Hepburn, Humphrey Bogart, Fred Astaire, and Cary Grant.
We'll probably get on well if you know who Robbe-Grillet is, enjoy Borges or Nabokov, can admit to liking Oscar Wilde, hate James Joyce and John Steinbeck, like Keats, appreciate Donne, and believe that Baldwin and Capote are among the greatest American writers in literary history.
Or, if reading isn't your thing, hit me up with a "Hello!" I welcome random IMs and notes.
