Apologies for the lack of updates but we’ve been busy at the Lounge, what with the polls going up and all. This half promises to be chock full of a lot of poetry; writers seem to be a dying breed, and what few there are, are either suffering through massive writers’ blocks or are in between pieces or finally, just plain lazy to put up their most recent work. We hate you all!
Our present reading series, being held in Islamabad, will be concluding in March 2009 (coming full circle), and we’ll probably have two more readings before then. As to whether or not we’ll continue the series remains to be seen. One of the moderators and key organizers of the reading, will be moving to Karachi on a permanent basis, so it’s a case of the ‘ifs and maybes’ for now. We’ll keep this space updated, however, as things progress.
Meanwhile, polls are going up with an expiration date of September 30. The date by which new pieces will be considered for inclusion into the fourth issue, is September 15. The interim two weeks will then be plenty of time for the bulk of our membership who chooses to mass-vote at the end.
Questions, comments etc? You know where to put ‘em!
