About Last Night
Blog of Terry Teachout, drama and music critic, covering the arts in New York City but of general interest to non-New Yorkers as well.

The Blue Moon Review
Excellent fiction, poetry, nonfiction, and hypermedia. For April, the site featured "Wash, Rinse, Repeat," a collection of previously-published poetry. Visit and enjoy.
Release a book into the world and track its progress as various people find, read, and re-release it. It's a virtual book exchange. "Books just wanna be free."
This site was the major non-literary inspiration for Inkburns. It is a difficult site to describe. "How to Dance" has received a lot of attention. Also, "The On-Line, Pre-Date Confidence Builder."
The online home of David V. Matthews, Pittsburgh-area artist and Inkburns contributor. Not to be missed: "Dave's Love Life," a collection of magazine articles and other items detailing his innovative, on-going quest for a date ... a sort of multi-media performance art piece.

A terrific collection of oddities and kitsch.
Cheryl Dellasega is seeking stories about relational aggression between girls of middle and high school age for her new book, When Girls Hurt Girls: What to Do When Words Become a Weapon.
The site for unfrazzling. Aimed at frantic women who have a lot going on and don't want to lose any of it, but the tips and ideas are less gender-specific than the site name implies.
National Novel Writing Month — the chance to let loose and write a really terrible novel in 30 days. Or you can write a good novel if you prefer. Runs during November every year. "NaNoWriMo is all about the magical power of deadlines." Sign up for next year.
This Page Intentionally Left Blank
The "This Page Intentionally Left Blank"-Project (TPILB-Project) encourages blank pages in Web sites, in memorial to blank pages in the backs of printed books and "to offer internet wanderers a place of quietness and simplicity on the overcrowded World Wide Web." Inkburns is proud to be part.
"Litter for the ill and literate." A clever, engaging, provocative site that we envy, although we try every day not to show it. Be sure to check out the story by Zadie Smith about American writers and their hair.
