A big thank you to the Postcard Press!

The Postcard Press is a really cool take on the literary journal. Each month, subscribers get copies of postcards featuring a poem of ten lines or less based on themes published on the website. The hard work is the result of Founder, Managing Editor, and Big Cheese Caitlin O‚ÄôSullivan as well as Designer and Creative Genius David Johnson. In February 2013, right around my birthday, I got 15 copies of my poem “Necromancy”, which won their call for poems on the theme of magic.

They also sell these cool back issue bundles from time to time. Photo courtesy of their Facebook page.

“New Baby” in Painted Bride Quarterly

Editor extraordinaire Kathleen Volk Miller and her delightful midwives at Painted Bride Quarterly gave me a nice surprise on my recent birthday when my curmudgeonly persona poem “New Baby at the Office” finally appeared. http://pbq.drexel.edu/pbq/archives/3464
