Poetry Publication: “Build the Wall”

My villanelle poem, “Build the Wall”, has been accepted by The Quarterday Review as part of the new Poets Respond category. It will also have the honor of being published in the upcoming Samhain issue. Currently, you can read it from the Quarterday’s Facebook page.


First Rejection

So…first sub didn’t work out. Not sure how I should take the quick turn around, but I’m going to go with slow period rather than alternatives 😉

Feel a bit disappointed, but this just means taking the opportunity to look over my piece again and submitting it somewhere new! And I’ve got a couple places in mind for my next attempts.

So it’s all good in the long run.

First submission

I just took a big step in my road to being a formal author. I’ve been writing for years now (I still have fanfic profiles set up), but I haven’t made the formal jump towards being published.

That changed just now.

So here’s hoping the response comes back positive, but in any case, here’s to the start of a new journey.
