I must have writing on the brain, because several of the good reads below are about writing.

This regular Saturday post is about the articles, essays and poems written by others. But if you’re into monster poetry, read the article “Controlling Our Monsters in Verse” by Marcus Goodyear at High Calling Blogs. One of mine is cited and discussed – but the article links to 26 poems written in the past week from monsters’ perspectives – and they are wonderful.
