CALL FOR POETS: Comment Magazine invites poets to submit contributions in the form of a rondeau suitable for publication in our September print issue. This will be our fourth annual "Making the Most of College" issue, and the submitted poems should in some way be connected with that theme, or with the beginning of the school year. Our poetry judges will select three of the submitted rondeaux for publication and offer pre-publication editorial advice to the poets. One of the selected rondeaux will be published on the first page of the September issue, and its poet awarded a prize of CDN $50. Two other winners will be published elsewhere in the magazine.
Email submissions or questions to email@example.com by June 15, 2009.

. . . And finally, Comment friend Scott Calgaro draws the attention of Philadelphia-area readers to Quixote! by director Lear deBessonet, a compelling reinterpretation of Cervantes' Don Quixote. While opening night was this past Wednesday, the show runs through June 7 at Broad Street Ministry. More about deBessonet here and here.
