Newly Published Poem
Happy to share my latest published poem, “Self-Portrait with Root Rescue™,” which Silver Birch Press published last week as part of its “My Mane Memories” series.
As noted beneath the poem, this one emerged from a prompt I discovered last April during National Poetry Month. I’d been trying to place it for several months when I learned about the themed call from Silver Birch Press. (I’d also read it aloud a couple of times in public, where it was well received.)
Look what arrived in the mail yesterday! It’s a book featuring both a foreword and an entire chapter by my dear friend Deb Elbaum. (And it has been autographed.)
Thank you, Deb! And many congratulations!!!
Against Submission Fees
Karen Craigo has a great post this week on the subject of litmag submission fees. Give it a read.
And then, if you’re so inclined, take a look back on this similarly-themed post of mine from this blog’s archive.
