Two new journals have picked up my work, and I am grateful and super excited! Plus, my kind friend Alice, who blogs fabulously here, nominated me for Apiary Magazine’s feature on locals’ favorite Philly poets with my poem “Local Church Falls in Love with Area Library” (Apiary post with Alice’s comments is here, full poem at Four Chambers Press is here). So that is a wonderful act of friendship for which I am grateful.
On to the two new journals!
Washington Square Review, which is a nut I’ve been trying to track for several years, picked up my Dorothea Lasky influenced poem “What if I don’t even like you?” which is, despite its title, a love poem. I will post a link to purchase the issue, or the poem itself if it goes online, when the time comes.
Painted Bride Quarterly, which is a super wonderful Philly based journal out of Drexel University, who hosts readings and slams and all the things the cool kids do, picked up my poem “When the World Ends,” written in a apocalyptic state of mind, as the title might imply.
I hope you will enjoy these poems when they come out!
