Well done, Mark.
They always gave me the bum's rush.

Congrats, Mark!

One of my few ambitions is to get something published there.

Hey folks,

Thanks so much for the kind words. I tried once before, after hearing it was a good place and got rejected. Something clicked the second time, obviously. So much is luck isn't it? Even being able to write poems is basically luck. It's a very weird business. Matt, I'm now a subscriber, one issue in. I've never subscribed to poetry journals before, but recently I treated myself to this and 'Pn Review'. It's a whole new field and feels quite decadent, what with mouths to feed etc haha. And there are so many! (Poetry journals, not mouths, though there's enough of them). But I tell myself I'm only spending what I used to spend on beer.

Thanks again.

Thanks Jake!

Sorry to bump this up (though I warned that I would) but my copy dropped through the letterbox this morning, so I'm excited all over again. Second poem in print.

Cheers all! I'll ride away on my dark horse now...

The Dark Horse is such a good lit mag. Congrats, Mark! There'll be many more publications to come, I reckon.

Great news about Vinyl, Sharkey! I remember it well. It must look very fine in print -- I can't wait to get my hands on a copy!

This is an exciting time for you. I'm so happy you're getting poems into the world!

Lots of warm,

Cally
