Well, my latest publication credit has finally become a reality. My poem "Map of the Visitor's Face" can be found at
http://www.melange-journal.org/3-1/face.html

And I'll be getting a contributor's copy as well.

(I'm shocked I got in! This journal has Pushcart winners and nominees, as well as this issue having a Pulitzer nominee! And then there's little me. I call this a real YAHOO!)

Davida:
Congratulations! I'm looking forward to seeing your poem and to reading a journal whose editors have such good taste. Don't let yourself feel inferior because of the other contributors' credentials: they were all just little ol' poets, too, before the sky opened up and showered them with acclaim. It could be that you're only beginning to discover your place.
Richard

Congrats: It's always fun to fly with the eagles (although it's a downer when your work appears with Lyn Lifshin's!). Keep at it--trying to get published is a nightmare, but it's an essential step in the process. Congrats again! Mike

Nice work, Davida. It's always a pleasure to see fellow Eratospherians in print. I also like the poem.

Thanks, all!

Yes, publishing is a difficult task - but necessary for the serious writers. Especially since some editors take such a long time to reply (waiting now 8 months to hear from Interbang!), and I don't sim sub.

But I feel truly honored that my little poem is in the same publication with such an illustrious poet. I think the editor likes to have a nice sampling of poems from all levels of publishing experience - I like that.

I can hardly wait to get my print copy!

(Got to pull out my Poet's Market again - haven't submitted anything for a couple of weeks now.)
