So Far, So Good…I Guess

I’m working pretty hard to generate some new work.  I may have left a few out, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to remind myself that someone out there wants to publish me, so I made myself compile this list of journals and anthologies that have done so.   (Links to most of these are available at EGGS OVER TOKYO, if you’re interested)

Tick Tick Tick…

I sent them two poems in April via Submittable, as instructed, so I received almost instant confirmation that they had been received.  One was subsequently published (in May) but Submittable still shows the submission as “In-Process.”

Yesterday, I contacted the editors (also via Submittable) :
 “I appreciate your publication of [XXX poem] back in May, and believe I can now safely assume that you will not be using [YYY poem], submitted at the same time.  Please consider this note to be that poem’s withdrawal, unless I hear otherwise form you within the next 10 days.”

We’ll see.
