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…?    🙂

The Aurorean is a biannual poetry journal published in April and October out of Maine in the US by Encircle Publications.

 

The Aurorean

 

Its 60 plus pages offer a variety of form and content from poets all over the world, with a focus on New England and the seasons, and includes a wonderful selection of Haiku. Having won several small press awards, the journal publishes work that “uplifts, inspires, and is meditational”, a refreshing perspective “in a world full of angst”.

Editor Cynthia Brackett-Vincent kindly accepted some of my work recently to appear in their forthcoming Fall/Winter issue due out next month.  I was excited by this news, not least by the thought that my work will appear in this beautifully presented and prestigious journal but also, and to quote one of my literary friends, I have now “cracked the US market!”  So only 3 more continents to go, as I’m discounting Antarctica unless their definition of penguin has changed…
