Well it happened. The Wisconsin Verse publication accepted my poem "Anyone Seen Sally" yesterday. Victory at last! (It really didn't take that long, actually.) They edited it slightly, and shortened my bio a bit, but that's OK, as long as it's in print, baby!
It is a weird beginning to a long, strange venture in the name of getting published. Never in a thousand years would I have guessed that it would have been a poem where I got my start, but things happen for a reason, I guess.
So, the question is, how do I follow this up? Time will tell with that as well.
Alas, other things call for my attention now, so I'll have to save the full post for this weekend.
In the meantime, please support the publication at www.wisconsinverse.org
