Melusine's fall issue just launched...

... and I'm very happy. I always forget how much time is involved in getting an issue together. It's a pleasant, leisurely process until that final stretch... but then it's such a great feeling when it's done.

Melusine 1.3

Now, back to some personal poetry projects and a little less time-pressing Melusine business... and of course, for right now, at least, catching up on at least a night and half's worth of sleep.

Check out my poem, "Pastoral," in the fall issue of Wicked Alice (some great stuff in here -- and love the cover!)

Poems Accepted in Arsenic Lobster

I'm thrilled that three poems of mine will be appearing in next Spring's Arsenic Lobster, that great online journal with the awesome name.

Poem Accepted in Gargoyle

How can I not be excited about a poem appearing in Gargoyle? It's such a great journal that's been around for such a long time, based right here in DC.
And the editor was so generous in giving me a chance to rehab a few lines that were ruining the poem for him, that I have to admit he was spot-on about. As an editor now myself, I have a sense of just how generous it is to take the time to work with people when you're going through as many submissions as they're getting over there (a bit more than we've been getting -- but give us another 26 years ;)
The poem will be appearing in the issue coming out next summer.

New issue of Melusine

Check out the summer issue of Melusine, which just launched. I'm really happy with it.
And now it's time to focus again on my own stuff, specifically sending out a few more submissions and prepping my first print chapbook manuscript... But for the moment, I'm taking a deep breath, and maybe turning in a little early tonight...

Two Poems Up on Thirteen Myna Birds

"More About Mermaids" and "The Accident," are right here (for now, but not forever, so check 'em out.)
I really love the concept of this journal.

New poem in elimae

It's been another good month (dreary weather aside.)
I hope you'll check out my poem, Curtain, in the March issue of elimae. Yes, I'm very excited to see it there, especially because this poem marked a slight shift in my style, and seeing it published confirms that I might be going in the right direction.

I was also very excited to receive a copy of the first print chapbook of work published in Lines + Stars, and see my poem, published online in the fall of 2007, on the first page. The first print run was a small one, but more copies will be available soon, and I hope to stock up.

And now I'm looking forward to Melusine's launch, of course, and the start of National Poetry Month (preferably in that order...)

Most of my favorite journals are online these days, and one of the very best is the long-running lit mag (13 years is worth decades in Web years) elimae. I so very much wanted to be published in that mag, so imagine my joy when I got the news this weekend that one of my poems will be appearing there in just two short weeks. A poet's life is full of delayed gratification, so having only a fortnight's wait is actually quite a treat.
In other news, working to get Melusine out by the end of the month. Will post the new link here once it's ready for prime time.
