Egrets Reading

Returning home to rejects/accepts

It's amazing the amount of mail and e-mail that can pile up when you're away from home.

In the mail stack and unread e-mail, I found a rejection for the three poems I sent to ZYZZYVA (not surprising since they reject 99% of what is received but it's always worth a try, huh?) and an acceptance from Dreams and Nightmares for my 70 line poem called "Man'yōshū at Galactic Edge: Poems from the Courtesan."

I also had some haiku accepted by White Lotus.

I also discovered copies of Star*Line, Modern Haiku, the print annual for The Heron's Nest, and Dreams and Nightmares waiting for me, so I'll have plenty of new poetry to read over the 4th of July.
