The Newark Review was revived by editor Christopher Funkhouser -- its first issue in a decade was dedicated to Allen Ginsberg & focused on “northern New Jersey’s fertile literary/visual arts community.” Summer 1999 issue was devoted to a single long prose-poem, “ALLAH MEAN EVERYTHING! Thus Spake Amiri Baraka”... Whenever Baraka speaks, the earth’s ear opens -- listen!
William Gillespie & friends embarked on a year-long collaborative writing project in 1999 -- a new poem every day until the year 2000 about events in the news. They invited contributions to help create “an alternative online news source where credibility is secondary to interesting writing,” & NewsPoetry kept on growing until late 2003.
