ken*again recently published three of my poems in their summer issue, Charles Sheeler Decides to Draw a Self Portrait, Home Front, and Take Me to Your Leader. I am especially pleased about the first two, as they were originally written over three years ago, when I was taking a poetry workshop at Eastern Connecticut State University in Willimantic Ct. Sometimes, when we write, it may take awhile to find a place to publish it. We may find ourselves giving up, putting something aside for awhile, refining it until we believe it’s just right, and some lucky editor agrees with us. The best thing to do is not get frustrated, give it time to sit, move on and come back.

Take some time this week to dig through old files for buried treasure. Turn new eyes on some old work, make a point to submit them to a new literary zine.
