Only Connect anthology and The Strix Varia
Cinnamon Press accepted three poems: Desert, For things she doesn't know and chopping board for the Only Connect Anthology edited by Gail Ashton and Jan Fortune-Wood. Really excited about this — I saw so many familiar names in the contents list.
Submission date: 9 February 2007

A new poetry-reading magazine:
Just discovered The Strix Varia today. Was touched and honored when the editor wrote me saying that they're running a close-reading by Lia Lynch of my poem, The 23rd Secret Love Poem — the one that won the Frogmore Prize last year. Wowza.
Simply love the idea of publishing — instead of poetry — essays, close readings, reflections and reviews on the work of living, published poets. Have always wanted to do a line-by-line reading/interpretation of some favorite poems and I know some of you do that blog-wise — so check it out. Even authors themselves can send a "reflection" on a published work (preferably online for the linking to work).
