CFS: Unreal Poems

The editors of Poemeleon are now accepting submissions for their next issue: the Unreal.  What defines the unreal?  According to the journal’s website,  the unreal could be defined in many ways including works that are magical realist, fabulist, or speculative or poems that otherwise incorporate the strange, the surreal, and the unreal, whether or not it could possibly really exist. Submissions will be considered until June 30, 2013.  Take a look here for complete guidelines.

Dear Monday,

If you could write a letter to Monday, what would you say?  The newest issue of Poemeleon, dedicated to the epistolary form, may give you some ideas.  In this issue, you can read some fantastic poems by Anthony Frame, Greg Rappleye, and Kathleen Kirk.  My poem, “Dear Suzy’s Bar & Grill” is also featured.

Hello, Weekend!

One would think that since the regular semester is over, that I would have more time to blog, but that hasn’t been the case.  I’ve spent the week finishing up spring semester’s business.  Plus, I started my summer creative writing class.  Also, Anthony and I have taken advantage of the nice weather to get some yardwork done.  I’ve also been trying to catch up with my reading and writing (and revising!)  I do, however, have some good news to report. Yesterday, I got an acceptance note from Cati Porter, the wonderful editor-in-chief of Poemeleon.  My poem, “Dear Suzy’s Bar & Grill” will appear in the next issue, which is dedicated to the epistolary form.

I also got my contrbutor’s copy of Sugar House Review, where my poem, “Crow Season” joins work by Liz Robbins, Kate Greenstreet, and Jenn Blair (among others).  Thanks to all the members of the Sugar House Review staff for such a beautiful literary journal!

Finally, special thanks goes to Jessie Carty who wrote a review of Wearing Heels on her blog!  Remember, (insert shameless self-promotion here), you can get your own copy (for $10 including shipping and handling) by dropping me a note at

Have a safe and happy holiday weekend!
