Fun thing about submitting work to Referential Magazine— regardless of whether the submission takes the form of poetry, photography, or non/fiction—is the process. Each submission must refer, in one way or other, to a work on the site that is already published. It could refer to a word in a poem, a sentence or phrase in a work of  non/fiction, or even to a video or static image.

Three circular photos now appear in the zine. The references, and links, are as follows:

Melanie Faith’s poem “Ad Infinitum” contains the phrase scattering them into circles.  Reading this poem recalls a photo I took at sunset in Richmond, British Columbia.  The scattered circles, and the poem, are here.

The words full moon in Ellen Kline McLeod’s poem “Her Cracking Open” bring to mind a moon scene I captured near Vancouver International Airport. For the image, and McLeod’s words, go here.

The third image refers to Paris Elizabeth Sea’s poem “moment, molecule”.  A full moon I witnessed one night while standing on the curb in front of my home refers to Sea’s words: the smallest of dots. For the moon and the poem, click here.

I’m pleased to report that my videopoem ‘the lake’ made the rounds…

It first appeared in ‘Referential’–a magazine that publishes referential literary and visual art. I submitted the piece, referring to the words ‘the lake’ that appear in a poem by Teresa Stores:

After the initial publication I discovered–by accident–that ‘the lake’ was featured in the media section of  ‘The #poems Daily’.  I’d mentioned the initial publication on Twitter and ‘The #poems Daily’ picked it up:

It wasn’t long before I stumbled across another republication of ‘the lake’. This time, in ‘Moving Poems’–a video poetry anthology that features “the best video poetry on the web”. Needless to say,  it’s a thrill to have my work featured alongside the likes of Cecilia Chapman and Alastair Cook:

Last year, two photos I took of the lake appeared in ‘elimae:’ Lake Hévíz , Hungary
