Last week I wrote a series of poems based on current events, on the Supreme Court ruling against religious freedom.
One poem "Preferring One Religion Over Another" is up at Poetry24, a UK based Online Magazine where "News is the Muse."
The poem was written in response to the Supreme Court ruling against freedom of religion for all when they ruled that a death row inmate in Alabama only has the right to have a Christian minister present regardless of the inmate's religious affiliation. This impacts Muslims, Jews, Buddhists, Shintoists, Sikhs, Jainists, Animists, Panentheist, Rastafarians, Deists, Daoists, Hindus, adherants of the Baha'i Faith, Native American religions, Wicca, Druidry, as well as atheists, agnostics and humanists and all the other non-Christian religions in America.
From the ACLU, "Justice Elena Kagan noted in dissent, “profoundly wrong.” It is also the latest example of a disturbing trend of religious favoritism, in which minority faiths — particularly Islam — are given second-class legal status."

I am looking for guest blog opportunities and a position as poet-in-residence. My current project is writing dictionary poems using words in different languages for the English word "peace." You can read some of my poems on Poemhunter .
As poet-in-residence I would write poems on different words in different languages and broadcast them throughout the social media blogosphere. Each poem would link back to your site where the word or language appeared.
I would expect some sort of stipend and a six month to one year placement. Please contact me for details if your organization is interested in having a poet-in-residence to help get your message out. Nervewhisperer@gmial.com
