Should know by January. Pardon me if I can’t stop freaking out before then. Professional!
Also, I got an acceptance from LEVELER, and my poem will be appearing in January.
My poem “Small Talk” appeared in Day One. Buy it here for just $1.99!
Finally, I have a poetry reading on December 10th in Philly. Come!
