Queries, reviews, students? Check, check, and check.
Busy day! At 11:30 AM, I held an obligatory start-of-term meeting with my students. On the whole, they seem a quieter, more sober group than last year's. It's so strange to see a sea of nearly all-female faces staring back at me, even though I attended a women's college as an undergraduate. Very few questions, all no-nonsense note-taking. Two of them (the lone guy included) hung back to accompany me on an expedition to locate our seminar classroom, which we had all better be able to find on Monday. It's tucked away in a third-floor hallway at Wentworth, closet-like, and it was locked when we tried to get in. This possibly bodes ill. If it's not open Monday, I'll raise hell.

I sent off my review of Emma Jones's The Striped World to the Australian Poetry Centre today, so we'll see if they decide to include it in an upcoming issue of Blue Dog: Australian Poetry. It's not every day you find a first collection brought out by Faber & Faber that's this good. Queries continue apace. I have some poems that have been out for ages.

ETA: Oh! And my contributor's copy of Not One of Us #42 has arrived.

Good luck with your students--and classroom--on Monday!
