Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer


As you’ll recall, my year of blogging for Poetry Has Value reached its end a number of months ago. But that doesn’t mean I can’t continue to share my poetry submission stats with you. So here’s the report for the month of November.

Midweek Notes from a Practicing Writer

Some big news to share today: After nearly three years helping to launch Fig Tree Books LLC (FTB), I will be leaving the Company. My final day with FTB will be Thursday, June 8.

I’ve enjoyed my time as FTB’s Media Editor immensely, and I owe much of that to all of you. So many among you have supported our work at FTB from the start: helping me publicize the Company and its happenings, reviewing its titles, interviewing its authors, and, above all, reading the books! For all of that, I thank you.

I’ll have more to share about what’s coming my way in due course. For now, I’m simply grateful for the past few years and eager to pursue the path ahead. I look forward to sharing the next phase with all of you!
