今年3月14与作者/代表签订出版代运合同,昨天下午将30000册印刷精美的成书送货上门,其间一共花了70天,老猿我从30年前国内第一部《汉英经贸大辞典〉的主编,如今退休了到变成国际贸易的实际操盘手,而且从翻译到审稿、编辑、责编、监印、代理进口运输至送货上门,一方面作者方催得紧,另方面有关排版印刷海运物流人员又不给力,其中的辛苦、烦恼让我常常食不甘味,寐不安寝。现在,总算是“结局好,万事好!” 今天我不但结清了全部款项,同时准时让书正式在温哥华与英文读者见了面。 老猿我没本事、缺才能直接帮助别人,只好尽我微薄之...

忧中华115-国人为何‘小人’多?
当今世界早已蜕变成一个小人当道、小人横行的社会。中国社会尤其如是。 就老猿观察,西人中伪君子泛滥,凡受过高等教育者一个个象小政客;而国人中真小人比比皆是,大多有一定社会地位者非小人则难有成就。 小人者没有真才实学只好靠歪门邪道、缺德伎俩拼命钻营,因此,一旦得道便鸡犬升天,自己要么做汉奸,要么做贪官。反过来讲,在中国社会里,在庞大的官僚体系内,真小人的比例最大。不是真小人,难得有'成就'。 概因为官本位的文化及人治的体制是盛产小人的温床。 2015, 3, 20 周五

3 Poems by Michael Anthony Ingram
WHEN I DREAM OF PARIS  When I dream of Paris, the sky is filled with expatriate desires. Desires that meld like Dali landscapes across the horizon. I walk briskly along the Champ Elysees, stopping only to drink coffee at a small café near the river’s edge. ...

忧中华116-国人为何独创精神差?
古代的族人原创精神并不比现代欧美人差,只要看看英人李约瑟的中国科技发明史便一目了然。但现代的国人却最善于生产山寨货。难道我们真的一代不如一代? 因为懒惰,怕花气力,因为急功近利,怕苦怕冒险。我们热衷于‘拿来主义’。更深层的原因或许有二:一是我们缺乏自信,不相信自己能独创天下最美好最先进的事物; 二是不够勇敢, 我们不敢不愿也承担不起风险与失败。不消说,这两大原因都与我们的近现代的文化习俗和教育体制有密切关系。 停止模仿吧,中国的艺术表演者们,导演们,作者们,工程师们,创造自己的美好吧! 2015, 3, 20 周五

ABOUT
Established on the Remembrance Day of 2012 in Vancouver, Canada, Poetry Pacific is a literary ezine committed to promoting and publishing the very 'best' contemporary poetry in English it can find. Although temporarily blog-confined, PP is one of the most open-minded poetry outlets one can find: we welcome all kinds of poetry from any one across the globe; although a relatively new comer to the scene, PP can be one of the longer-enduring literary publications: it is at least a 2-generation project; although a highly humble starter, PP has great ambitions: it has been developing much faster than expected, and will promote poetical/cultural exchanges between English and Chinese, the two most widely used languages in today's world. Following a blind submission policy, Poetry Pacific is of, by, and for true lovers of words and wisdom. 

MISSION
Poetry Pacific functions to publish and promote 'the Best Contemporary Poetry in English' it can find.

DISCLAIMER
The opinions expressed by each individual published or interviewed poet/author in Poetry Pacific are the poet/author's alone, and do not necessarily reflect those held by PP.

WARRANTY & AGREEMENT
By submitting to PP, the submitter warrants that s/he alone has created the work s/he is submitting and that s/he owns all rights to it. The submitter will indemnify and hold PP and its staff harmless from and against any and all loss, damage, costs and other expenses arising out of claims, whatever their nature, resulting directly or indirectly from breach of this warranty. At the same time, the submitter/contributor agrees that PP can use part or all of his/her accepted material, including responses to PP's interview questions, on its facebook and/or other similar social networking vehicles for promotional purposes. 

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

* All poetic and photographic works are carefully read/viewed year round on a rolling basis for PP's spring, or autumn issue, to be released respectively on 5 May and 5 November;  

* No author information except your name and email address in your submission please - we follow the blind submission policy, and will ask you for a brief 3rd-person bionote upon acceptance, where we will include your email address unless otherwise specified;

* Multiple and simultaneous submissions, as well as previously published work, are all equally welcome insofar as you still hold the copy/publishing rights;

* Although we wish to pay our poets and buy certain rights from them, there is no money exchange involved, at least not for now, except a genuine shared love for art and wisdom;

* Please send up to 5 of your best shorter poems each time by pasting them all within the body of your email to editors.pp@gmail.com, or visual artworks as individual separate attachments. We will NOT open any attachments/files for virus/spam-related reasons;

*  Please feel welcome to send us a query if, for instance, your accepted work does not appear as scheduled;

* Our response-time is 30 days at latest, usually shorter than 3 weeks: since we never give anyone any 'rejection notice,' please feel free to do whatever you want to do with your submission if you do not get any response/acceptance from PP within 30 days after you send it over to us. In other words: only those accepted will get a reply.  -- Many thanks for your kind support of PP & Gooooodluuuuck!
