The Best Possible Follow-up to That Blog I Wrote About That Poem I Wrote

The one I rambled about here? I got an email over the weekend from Australian Poetry Journal asking for a bio to go with the poem because they want to publish it in (I think) the July issue of APJ. Which is really unexpected, given my track record in recent years for successful poetry submissions, but hey four days is definitely less than ninety, so that’s pretty nice.

Of course the irrational lizard part of my brain is now determined to test the association between that blog post and this quick turnaround, and it’ll be hard hard hard not to post another snarky blog about how long it takes to hear back about submissions the next time I send anything out into the scary big world of journals.

Anyway, gettin’ published: yay.

  1. I am not at all surprised because, damn, it’s a good poem. But I am also delighted. Congratulations!

  2. I submitted to them yesterday. Hope I’m as successful as you were and hear back as quickly!

    Congrats.

Quelle Grammage!
so this happened... #mrt #mistert happy with today’s random encounter. he came home with me ma - can i keep ‘im? ps they don’t write liner notes like that any more. “The first few moments on land are always disorienting. I need a moment to adjust to the air warming against my skin and the unfiltered light coming in straight lines from the sun.” that one time i wrote one poem about #björk’s “Alarm Call”
