Waking to good news

I've been so mentally scrambled lately that I forgot to share my latest good news. My poem "The Nile" was accepted for publication in TMP Irregular #35. That's 2 poems accepted by Mr. Gurney, 2 months straight. He's a cool guy too, no bullshit. Guarantees turn around from submission to acceptance or rejection in 3 weeks or less. People like Lyn Lifshin and John Sweet are published by TMP, so I'm pretty proud to be included with the likes of them - even if it is an online publication. If it's good enough for Lyn Lifshin, it's damn sure good enough for me!

  2. I've just had a look at the new TMP issue- I didn't read the conetents, just browsed through: hm-hm, yes, ok, not bad, wow-this one's good--- down to the bottom of the page-it's yours! So a thumbs up from a blind test!

  3. thanks Mike!

    Martin, actually, I like that very much! Sometimes I have to wonder how many of my rave reviews I get just because the reader knows/likes me personally. So, I appreciate the blind test thumbs up!:)
