NewsBlog discontinued; visit Poemeleon: The Blog for more information.

Dear Readers:

In the interest of consolodation, ease of navigation, and my own belief that simpler is better, I have decided to move Poemeleon: The Blog over to the Poemeleon website and will be consolidating the NewsBlog with The Blog, all in the interest of efficiency and in concert with some other organizational changes we've made. Bear with us while we continue to streamline our operation.

The old NewsBlog will remain archived on the site indefinitely; look for a link on The Blog's index page. Any new entries for the NewsBlog will appear on The Blog under the NewsBlog category heading.
