Spindle: Play Ball!

While the weather hasn’t really acknowledged it yet, Spring is officially here, and there’s no better sign of the hopefulness it brings with it than the start of baseball season, as the Mets and Yankees vie for a shot at another subway series to send their old stadiums out with a bang.

Over at Spindle, we’re getting into the spirit of the season with the release of our Play Ball issue and the announcement of the winner of our first ever writing contest:

The House That Ruth Built

Her poem is featured in this month’s Play Ball issue, and she will receive a $50 honorarium, $25 of which she is graciously donating back to the magazine.

The issue also features Honorable Mentions from Caroline DePalma, Robert Ross, Wayne Scheer, Janet A. Shainheit and Skip Shea; plus new and archived work from Roger Bonair-Agard, J.T. Clark, Guy LeCharles Gonzalez and Larry Jaffe.

If baseball isn’t your thing, we also have new columns from Stephanie R. Myers (Myers Music Machine) and Brooke Wacha (On the 1), plus a great new Gallery from Syreeta McFadden.

It’s our biggest monthly update yet (and only one day late this time!) so log on now, get to reading, leave a comment for your favorites and be sure to share them with your friends on Facebook, Digg, StumbleUpon, etc.

Thanks for reading!

PS: Be sure to check out Spindle favorite, Michael Cirelli, this Friday at the Bowery Poetry Club as he celebrates the release of his first collection of poetry, Lobster with Ol’ Dirty Bastard, probably the first book to feature glowing blurbs from Patricia Smith, David Lehman and Kanye West!
