Fall is underway here in Mulhouse where the quiet of the streets is a radical change from bustling NYC, and the long days and nights are all about the silence of reflection and perspective--looking back over the summer and forward towards the academic year and many writing projects . The cool seems to have descended upon us all at once, too, as if a reminder that it is time to get to work. And it looks like many magazine editors are also hard at work, combing through their piles of summer submissions and making decisions. It is thus with great pleasure that my fall has begun with some exciting just out and forthcoming publication news: POEMS appearing in October, November and December
Forthcoming poems: “After the Beheading” and “Apparition” will be in the new, online literary magazine Similar Peaks. headed by David Blumenshine and Rachel Burns alongside poetry editors Jessica Linde Hiestand and Carleen Tibbets. They are still getting their website in order, but with a little work you can find poems and images from their first issue, including exciting work by Dara Wier, Paige Taggart and others, as well as information in case you want to consider sending them your own work at: http://similarpeakspoetry.com/
“A Slim Box of Her” and “Take Cover” have been accepted for publication in Tears in the Fence, issue 58 due out in winter 2013/2014, Dorchester, UK. Edited for almost 30 years now by David Caddy, this print-only lit mag including poems from authors around the globe as well as a really hefty reviews and articles section in each issue has a fairly new website up and running at: http://tearsinthefence.com/. Feel free to help them keep going by purchasing back issues or subscribing to forthcoming issues via: http://tearsinthefence.com/pay-it-forward/
