3–No, Wait–4 Pieces In The Pipeline

     I guess I’m on a bit of a roll, lately.

     I got word last night that The Orange Room Review, a really fine online publication featuring substantial and accessible poetry, has accepted one of my poems, “Late Snow, By The Numbers” for their next issue, which they say will go live later this month or possibly in early April.
     I had a piece there a couple years ago (“On Tour With The Percussives” ) and, frankly, I don’t know why I haven’t resubmitted my work there more frequently. I’m a regular reader, and I’ve never encountered a clunker. You can find the Percussives piece HERE.
     I’ll  post a link once my piece is up. You should definitely check them out.

     I’m also eagerly awaiting the release of the print version of Volume IV of A Clean, Well-Lighted Place, which ought to be available soon. My poem “Tutor” appeared there last October (online) and is slated for inclusion in the upcoming ink. Like any poet, I urge you to support the arts by purchasing a copy. I bought Volume III and, if that’s a good yardstick, you can’t go wrong with Volume IV. Meanwhile, you can read “Tutor” at their online site HERE. Better yet, get a broader view of the fine work they do, starting with their home page, HERE.

     And, as I mentioned in an earlier post, the inaugural online issue of   *82 review—which ought to be up soon—will include my poem “Charlie”.  I’ll definitely be back to let you know when it goes live.
     I know a lot of writers are reluctant to submit to fledgling publications unless they’re familiar with the publisher(s)/editor(s), but I like to live dangerously. And there’s always the possibility that, decades hence, when that pub has millions of readers and has become the most sought-after literary credit, you’ll have the satisfaction of saying you were there at the very start. At the time I’m writing this, there’s only a “coming soon” notice, but I figure that if they’re discriminating enough to accept “Charlie“, they’ll probably be worth reading. 


OH!  I ALMOST FORGOT!  Please don’t forget (don’t worry, I won’t let you forget) to check out my poem “Not Quite Mudluscious Yet” sometime in April at EVERY DAY POETS!


I’ve got another dozen or so pieces floating around out there.  I’m keeping my fingers crossed.
