I'm so excited to announce that "into the warp and woof: Best of Frameless Sky, Volume 1" will finally be released on August 8! It will be available in paperback, containing the top 110 poems by 72 poets, some of which are paired with stunning artwork by all the featured artists from Issues 1-10. This anthology will also be available as digital download.
Endless gratitude to Shloka Shankar for her generous help in my selection and editing process. So blessed to her as my goddaughter!
Here's the foreword written by Robin Smith for the anthology! Thank you so much, Robin! You make me so proud of Frameless Sky and all the people behind its success! Big hugs to you!
Frameless Sky has just recently made a few changes.
1) Starting Issue 12, Frameless Sky can be viewed in two different ways.
a. dvd format
b. private video uploaded on YouTube.
2) You now have two options in purchasing an issue.
a. annual subscription (prices include shipping)
b. single issue (prices include shipping)
3) A donation option
Here is the link to see the new prices and options.
*If you love Frameless Sky and would want me to continue creating a unique poetry video journal, please support these changes. As you all know, each production entails gruelling hours before it gets completed. It is genuinely a labor of love, but to be honest, it is also more gratifying to be compensated in return. This will not only boost my enthusiasm and creativity, but also help me give a regular and more substantial compensation for contributing artists and musicians. Who knows? Maybe one day, Frameless Sky will be able to afford to pay contributing poets. ;-)
Here's Issue 12's sneak preview!

Crunch time! It's never easy trimming down the list of poems so please bear with me. You'll hear from me soon. To help me get down to work, I am now listening to Kevin MacLeod's composition, "Simple Duet."
