Due to the enormous time pressure he is under as a working man in his early late twenties, James Harris is attempting to express his experience of life in four lines of poetry daily.
Hailing from Nottingham, James Harris is a writer and translator resident in Berlin. He has published work in the May Anthologies, Bordercrossing and The Liberal Magazine. He is the Associate Editor of ‘Comedy Studies’ journal and his novella ‘The Comedy of Maria’ was published by Cerise Press in Summer 2010.
The Four Line Blog is intended as a temporary project. The poet intends to write 365 posts, one for each day of a year. Only exceptional audience interest or a sense of the continued viability of the project will affect this decision. But perhaps in excess 1460 lines of four line poetry are enough for anyone, from one pen at least. The blog will remain online afterwards as memorial to this year.
Until now, six of the poems have been published independently in Paris/Atlantic magazine, Fall 2009 edition.
‘The Four Line Blog’ accepts poems on commission. If you have an idea or theme you would like to see a four line poem composed about, or wish a poem as a dedication, please be in touch and the author will attempt some lines on the subject. As payment he asks that you publicize the blog further.
