New Look, Same Place

Hello, reader. You may be looking around the website and wondering at the stark changes–not the least of which being the url, which has changed from http://www.delilahmywoman.com to http://www.paintedblindpublishing.com. That is because, as the number of projects on the websites grows and its purpose changes, it finds itself quite a long way from the meager necessities which inspired its founding. With far more than Delilah, My Woman to consider, we had to adapt to a more universal name. http://www.delilahmywoman.com will still get you here (which means my business cards are… Read more New Look, Same Place

A Clockwork Butterfly: Broadway Trip Wrap-Up and Lightning Stenography Device News

Having recently had the opportunity to visit New York City for the first time and spend a week there seeing ten shows, on- and off-Broadway both, I was struck not just by the quality of New York theater, but the breadth of experimentation.

That’s not to say that OSF does not produce challenge and experimental material, but I think… Read more A Clockwork Butterfly: Broadway Trip Wrap-Up and Lightning Stenography Device News

With as many submissions as I have floating… Read more The Ishtar Sonnets
