I love this cover art! Even more, I love that it’s a publication I get to add to my Ego Shelf because it contains one of my poems 🙂
Beneath, originally published by Every Day Poets, is included in the 2014 Dwarf Stars anthology 🙂
My contributor copy was waiting for me when I arrived back home from When Words Collide and I absolutely can’t wait to sit down and devour it. I already snuck (sneaked?) a peek at the page my piece is on and saw Megan Arkenberg’s poem, This Bus Stop Was a Coral Reef, Once which I enjoyed so much I read it out loud to Jo (who also liked it).
My poem, Beneath, is going to be included in the 2014 Dwarf Stars anthology. That means it is eligible for a Dwarf Star award!!1!
Let’s be honest here, my odds of placing in the top three are pretty freaking slim (I’ve seen the anthology, there is some amazing work in there), but dudes — my poem is included! I’m over the moon 🙂
The last time my work was nominated for an award or any sort of special recognition was five years ago when my poem Lovers was nominated for a Rhysling award. So it’s been a while.
This? This makes me happy.
(That cover is for last year’s Dwarf Star anthology. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to share this year’s cover yet so… )
I’m going to call it a brain fart. I totally forgot that my poem, Beneath, was being published on Every Day Poets at the end of February. Totally, totally forgot. For some reason I thought it was being published at the end of this month, but no, that’s a different poem. /facepalm
So. Yes. My poem, Beneath, went live on Every Day Poets on February 25th. I know it’s a little behind the times, but please do take a look and lemme know what you think. I’m pretty fond of this one 🙂
I’m super excited to announce that my short horror poem, Beneath, has been accepted to appear on Every Day Poets some time in the near future. I love Every Day Poets. I love it as a reader and as a writer. I honestly believe they are helping me write better poems. The combination of reading other people’s work each day and the feedback the editors provide on many of my submissions is making me a stronger poet. Acceptance, when it comes, is just a wonderful bonus 🙂
