Wrapping Up April

April has not been a complete poetry bust for me.  Yes, it’s true that I didn’t write anything this past month except official reports for school and a presentation for a conference.  I may have a scribble or two in my journal that may be worth saving.  But that’s it.  Still, in the past week or so, I got three acceptances via email, so somehow, I still feel like a working poet.  I’m especially excited about my poem, “The Union Steward Switches Back to Third Shift” which will be published in Motif’s thematic book/journal about work later on this year. 

The time for entering for a chance to win a poetry book from the Big Poetry Giveaway is running out. On Sunday, May 1, I will choose three winners.  If you haven’t dropped me a note, stop by here, and take a chance!



  1. Woo Hoo. Congrats on the acceptances!

  2. Happy April! Congrats on the acceptances – proof that your work was working for you even while you were busy 😉

  3. Now that’s a good month — congratulations, Karen!
