The Poet’s Eye is celebrating its sixth anniversary. Since 2004 The Poet’s Eye has looked at American life and all its thrills and spills with the wit, charm and penetration its readers have come to expect. In the tradition of Molly Ivins, Hunter Thompson and Mark Morford, Lightning Rod’s quirky commentary offers a unique and poetic insight into today’s events. The Poet’s Eye has made regular appearances on The Daily Kos, Literary Kicks, Studio Eight as well as numerous and sundry other sites on the web. It takes no partisan positions and has no political ax to grind, just presents insights and possibilities and observations of the world as viewed through the acerbic eye of the poet. With its folksy and irreverent tone The Poet’s Eye always supplies its growing readership with bite-sized buffets of common-sense and good old story telling.
The internet media revolution has torn through the world of print publishing like a tornado. The pages of long-respected publications are fluttering in the wind miles from home and things are still settling in the debris field. Nobody knows who is working for whom. In view of this, The Poet’s Eye is going to work directly for its readers. If you have enjoyed The Poet’s Eye these past six years, if it has given you a thought or a smile, you now have the chance to help it continue. The Poet’s Eye Sponsorship Program lets you show your support for free and imaginative thinking in a real, tangible way. With money.
Poets have traditionally been mendicants and The Poet’s Eye sees no reason to break with this tradition. The tip jar is sitting next to the rice bowl and the collection plate. Don’t be shy. No contribution is too small or too large. Help keep The Poet’s Eye alive. Join The Poet’s Eye Sponsorship Program!
