A Good Start to 2018

25 Feb 2018

I have a good start to the year with several poems being accepted! Cascadia Rising Reivew took two poems; Ramingo's Porch took "The Psychic Ruins My Belief About the Afterlife"; and Rat's Ass Review took "What We Can Do". Tuck Magazine accepted "There is Always a Moment When the Child is Lost" and "If You Die Alone..." And I have finished my second poetry collection and hand it off to an editor at the end of March. 

Happy to Report

Several of my poems have found a home in the following publications: "Transition to Divorce" in Suisun Review; "Buzzwinkle" in The Scriblerus Journal; "Serving Lunch to the Homeless Men at the Gospel Mission" in Clover: A Lit Rag; and finally, the Spokane County Library produced a themed anthology on Celebration and they took two of my poems. 

A good run of publications!

I am so happy that I've had a good run of acceptances over the past few months....(and yes, a lot of rejections arrived in the same timeframe). Olive Press took "The Strange Behavior of Grief", Inscape published "The Secret of My Parent's Marriage" (see link), THE THING ITSELF will publish "Empty Nest" in their upcoming issue and Flint Hills Review will do the same with my poem "The Black Helmet".
