Poetry submissions

So over the last two weekends I put out almost 90 poems to some 15-20 journals.

It's grueling. I did close edits on most of the poems I submitted, and I read sample poems from most of the journals I submitted to with a critical eye, to see if anything I had written might be a good fit.

All of which explains why I haven't written anything in the last few days. The creative/critical faculties were in full use!

Next weekend's project will be another round of letters of inquiry on behalf of Drumheart. In the meantime, my brain needs to recover.

UPDATE: 3 acceptances from Raintown Review. (I just emailed them my submission last night.) "Funeral Home Coffee" for the summer issue, "Snow and Silk" and "Faust in the Industrial Age" for the winter issue. Alhumdulillah!

UPDATE: Another rapid responder, The Road Not Taken, accepted Chalk Talk, Petrified Wood, Hobo's Door, Water Music, and Thunderbird Poem.

Collection available! Knocking from Inside
