The Journal of Kentucky Studies accepted three of my poems for their next issue. I used to live there, hence kentucky poems. I was a little surprised to get an acceptance though--I sent those poems to them two years ago! usually after a year, I assume that my poems are returned to the earth via recycling.
Also, my chapbook "A Pleading Sound" is quarter-semi-finalist (woohoo!) in the Mary Ballard Poetry Chapbook Prize by Casey Shay press. along with about 100 others, out of the 350 submissions. hey, but i'm in the top 1/3rd, not so bad right?
