celebrating web-active poets

Whale Sound is now closed

In announcement on 10/03/2011 at 23:26

It’s been a tremendous year and incredibly rich learning experience, but it’s time to move on to other projects. These archives will remain in place.

Warmest thanks to all those poets who gave permission for their poems to be read here, all those who participated in the group reading sessions, all those who stopped by to listen, and, most particularly, all those who sent in third-party submissions.

Best wishes,

Nic Sebastian

  1. Nic, I am proud to have been a Whale Sound poet. This project was brilliant. I look forward to what you do next!

  2. I so appreciated having you read my poem, Nic, and it’s been a wonderful year of listening to great poetry I may not otherwise have found. Thank you. I look forward to your future projects.


  3. Congrats on a great run for Whale Sound. I have great hope for your future endeavors!

  4. Your reading of my poem has meant so much to me, and I’ve loved hearing the other poems, as well, this year. Thanks again for all you do for poetry.

  5. It’s been a grand adventure. Thanks for taking us on it with you! What a thrill!

  6. Nic:

    Thanks so much for reading my poem here. You found elements in it that I didn’t know were there. I know you’ll continue to apply the same approach to your next projects. Best wishes.

  7. Thank you, Collin, Marybeth, Clare, Pamela, Kathleen and Daniel – all wonderful Whale Sound poets! Thanks so much for letting your poems be part of this project. Best, Nic

  8. Nic, you have no idea how much I will miss your voice, it’s been like having a friend read poems just for me. You’ve done a terrific job with this, the poems have been exceptional, and I know you will only be doing more great work. But I will miss Whale Sound!

    best always, risa

  9. Congratulations on your fruitful year, Nic. Looking forward to your next project. Best, Kate

  12. Thank you for all you have done Nic!!! An amazing, beautiful year!

  13. I loved Whale Sound. It saddens me to hear the silence.

    Thanks for all you did for online poetry.

    I can’t wait for (and best of luck on) your next project.
