L’Éphémère Review

Kanika Lawton is the Editor-in-Chief of L’Éphémère Review, an online literary and art journal that explores, “the ephemeral, musings on the existential, and establishment of the eternal. We are fascinated with the interplay between memory and reality, truth and interpretation, perception and perspective, and the past, present, and future.”  I am grateful to L’Éphémère Review for publishing “Care Of” in Issue IX:  Dalliance.

It is always such a joy to publish with Sheila-Na-Gig online!  This particular issue feels a bit like a family reunion with friends and fellow UAA/MFA colleagues also publishing work in these digital pages:  Vivian Faith Prescott, Raquel Vasquez-Gilliland and Lisa Stice.  Thank you to Editor Hayley Mitchell Haugen and Intern Assistant Editor Jessica Higgins for giving three of my poems a home in this issue:  “Oceanography,” “The Geography of Grief” and “You Choose Your Solitude.”  All can be read here.

Sheila-Na-Gig online publishes well-crafted free verse poetry. We especially seek poems with excellent imagery and a strong sense of voice.”  You can learn more about submission guidelines and upcoming deadlines here.

Willow Literary Magazine

Thank you to the editors of Willow Literary Magazine for including a short stack of my poetry in their inaugural issue:  “Lemon Lavender Wings,” “Nomad,” and “Second-Hand.”

As written on their website:  “Willow is a literary magazine dedicate to publishing authors who identify as women, to whatever degree they do. There is disparity between the number of male-identified authors that are published and reviewed and those of female-identified authors . We believe that literature is a way to bridge gaps, and to amplify voices that are under-represented by allowing people access to the experiences of “the other.” Given our current social and political climate, we think it’s an important time to do all we can to give the underrepresented a safe place to express themselves, to promote their voices, and to keep creating.”

Always happy to share work in journals the celebrate women’s writing!
