December arrived and with it typical Missouri weather. Cold one day and a record high for one day of 72. You can never judge Missouri weather by a one day experience.
Had an open mic reading recently on zoom and read my new poem, "lost & Found" from the fall issue of 34 Orchard.
It's been a busy year evidenced by my submission stats.
Still got more days left this month.
A short time back I mentioned on FACEBOOK I had a poem accepted by a journal that I was particularly excited about. I didn't name the journal but indicated I would soon. Soon has arrived the contacts has been signed and payment actually made already.
The Journal is 34 Orchard. My poem will appear in the Fall issue release date November 10, 2021.
Kristi Petersen Schoonover, Editor as 34 Orchard writes, "What I love about "Lost & Found" is, on a surface level, its universal message- we've all had days like this. Yet, in the end, it gets turned around, and, on a deeper level, speaks to healing. It's also entertaining and has a little bit of a sense of fun amid the darkness. In Short, "Lost & Found" is exactly what lives at 34 Orchard--visceral work, that illustrates the dark reality of our world; those internal things we cannot talk about. but we all know exist. I believe this piece is going to reach someone, and if you reach at least one person with your fiction, then you've done you job as a writer.
I'm very excited join the 34 Orchard family
