I’m working on putting together some kind of updatable tally of publications to link somehow (still figuring WP) but thought it would be appropriate to finish the year with a short tally of accepted publications.
I had two poems published in The Missing Slate, which is an international literary and art magazine that has introduced me to some interesting writers and artists – seriously, check it out!
Asphalt Story #84 was published as a weekend poem in March which was a wonderful treat. It also represented Finland in the Poetry World Cup where it didn’t go any farther than the first round but the whole experience was fun. I was also honoured to be included in the three poems the magazine included in its Pushcart Prize Nominations following a vote.
In addition, I had poems published in the Halloween Special of Glitterwolf which is a UK-based literary and arts magazine celebrating the work of LGBT contributors from around the world. They publish fiction, poetry, art and photography. The three poems included by yours truly were Corpus Delicti, Keep Me In a Hole, and Overture. The first two of these can be read in the free taster while the full magazine can be bought on Amazon: UK buy link and US buy link There are four variant covers and lots of spooky and queer stories and poems on offer.
I also had another poem accepted to the Plunge Magazine but sadly it seems to have ran into problems as nothing happened after the acceptance letters were sent out and neither the site nor the Tumblr have been updated since. This is a shame as it seemed like a great magazine and I can only speculate something drastic and sudden happened that has prevented the editor/owner from continuing with it.
That’s it for 2014. I have two more poems coming out in January so more on those once they are out! This leaves me to wish everyone Happy and Creative New Year 2015!
*A Finnish phrase, roughly translating to ‘the last one is being taken away’ which is appropriate for the last day of the year.
