You have been selected to be in the Sixty Four Best Poets of 2018 by the Black Mountain Press and The Halcyone Magazine editorial staff!”
I’m so happy about this. Fellow writers will understand that after papering the walls of one’s study with rejection notices, publication is a treat…but to win a competition is, well, something entirely new for me.
Profound thanks to Bruce Beasley for the editorial guidance and discerning questions which yielded my three winning poems.
The poems in question “Solicitation,” “My Life as a Damascene Sword,” and ”When we Swam Together,” will be published at the end of January.
