And acceptances come in twos

Incredible but true!

Recent Acceptances:

poeticdiversity has accepted three poems: "Fish", "Love and Benny Hill" (previously published in Iota) and "Allhallows Noon" for their August 2006 edition. They've got pretty long response times, but they *do* reply.

Forklift, Ohio are, in their own words, "quite taken with" my instructions on How to Give Your Poem a Masterpiece Body Odor, and plan to include it in an upcoming issue.

Publications Received:

Poetry Ireland (issue 85) which included three of my poems and, doing the banana dance here a nice 32-euro check -- the hefty part will, of course, go to fund EA Games because the Sims 2: Open for Business expansion pack will be released on March 3rd. The remains will be used to purchase fresh milk for my husband's coffee (half of which I drink, of course, being his other half).

Orbis (#135, Winter 2005) with my poem, Franklin in the Garden -- first drafted in Blueline's House of 30. Really thrilled by this copy which has terrific poems, magazine reviews and many calls for submissions. Off to do the mutton jump of joy!

Whoo! You are kicking butt and taking names. Congratulations!

P.S. My daughter saw the dancing banana and thought it was the coolest thing ever. She giggled almost until she fell on the floor.
