Much gratitude to Bluebird Word for publishing “Guidebook for Heart Protection.” Happy to see this one find a home in the e-pages of this sweet journal. Here’s the link for writers interested in sending some of their own poetry and/or flash fiction/nonfiction.
I’ve not paid full attention to the importance of words since the turn of the year, at least in blogging terms. In early February, I received notice from Editor Bethany Rivers that she had selected two of my older poems, “Death by Staff Meeting” and “Strong Voice” for publication in Issue 8. Thrilled to see these oldies build their nest among other related writings. And while my feelings about staff meetings really haven’t change much, I can say that strong voice is a bit like a tide experiencing everything in its path.
