Two Poems accepted by Eclectica

I just received word that two of my poems have been accepted for publication in the fall issue of Eclectica Magazine. The poems to be published are: "An Appearance" and "Distance." The issue will be released on October 1, 2007.

I spent much of the weekend working on new poems and preparing submissions. So much of the past year or more has been consumed by the writing and rewriting of my second novel, leaving little time for the making of poems. I'm working on my third novel, but have arranged my schedule to include more time for reading and writing poems. Participating in the 30:30 workshop at ITWS helps keep me focused on writing a poem each day.
