I’m so excited! I’ve had welcome news about two poems recently.
One poem, "Jaguar," which I sold to Spider Magazine almost exactly two years ago, has been scheduled for their Nov/Dec issue. An artist is working on the illustration, and I can’t wait to see how it comes out! (Spider currently has a shout-out about one of my nonfiction books up on their website, too!)
And Highlights has bought a back-to-school poem from me. No guess at all on when that will appear, but this happy news has me humming and smiling!
I don’t submit poems to magazines very often. There are few markets and intense competition. Every once in while (perhaps once or twice a year), I’ll send out a batch and then receive a batch of rejections following that. It’s really fun to know my first magazine poem will be appearing before the end of 2010!
