Breaking Into the Weekend

Finals are done, final grades are in, my desk is (almost) cleaned off!  I am ready for the Winter Break! 

Two pieces of good news to share this week:  I got an acceptance note from Sugar House Review — one of my favorite literary journals.  If you don’t know the work published in this wonderful journal, you should subscribe.  And according to the website, they will be open for submissions in January 2012.

I also got my contributor’s copy of River Styx in the mail.  River Styx is also one of my favorite literary journals, and I am so excited that my poem “All My Boyfriends Wore Beer Labels for Nicknames” is found within its pages.

2012 is coming quickly! I’m taking up Mary Biddinger’s challenge to see if I can write at least three new poems before the new year.


  1. Hooray! Sugar House Review is terrific — congratulations, and have a happy break!

  2. Hi Karen,

    I love the Sugar House Review too!

    By the way, I’ve awarded your blog a Liebster Blog Award. There is no need to participate in all the hoopla that goes with it (the linking back, etc.) unless you want to, but I did want to take the opportunity to thank you for all your great content this year.

    Jessica Goodfellow
