As I mentioned in a previous post, I had a piece accepted for the fall/winter issue of the Aurorean poetry journal published by Encircle Publications.  Well, it’s out now!

Fall Winter 2014 2015 Aurorean


Contributors receive a free copy, plus a special discount on further copies purchased, so I’m really looking forward to mine arriving, which I anticipate taking a little longer considering the distance needed to travel!

It’s well known that on the whole, poetry doesn’t pay.  However, like many other poets I don’t write to earn and when you think about it, “pay” has many connotations.  I still get a thrill from seeing my work and name in print so this is the value for me.  And when you couple that with contributor copies and the publicity provided, I feel that’s a pretty good deal, don’t you…?    🙂
