Today I received my 12th (give or take one or two) rejection from a literary magazine.
Still no word from AGNI. And I have other poetry submissions out at Strange Horizons, Asimov’s, and The Georgia Review.
According to the website, Margie Volume 5 (with my poem “The Love Boats”) will be released on October 30.
MYTHIC II (with my poem “Bluebeard’s Second Wife) is available for order from
Dreams & Nightmares 74/75 (with my poems “Aliens Built Table Mountain” and “[Insert Title Indicating this is a Poem about Bluebeard the Wife Murderer, not the Pirate]”) will be going to the printers soon.
On a somewhat interesting note, the two Bluebeard poems were written and sold roughly a year apart, but the second poem has beaten the first to press. When/if you read the poem Second Wife, you’ll know why this is so amusing to me.
On Wednesday, October 18th I’ll be reading my poetry with two other grad students in the Student Center. Not that anyone who reads this blog lives near Carbondale and could come. Or would want to.
