Always When You Least Expect It

An acceptance! Poetry Southeast accepted the revised version of my villanelle that Barrow Street almost took a few months ago. I’m very excited about Poetry Southeast accepting one of my poems because the list of poets in their last issue includes quite a few “name” poets.

Interestingly, Poetry Southeast does not ask for first rights:

“Authors retain all rights and copyright to their works. PoetrySoutheast DOES NOT request one-time, non-exclusive rights to print your work.”

I wrote Poetry Southeast to confirm my interpretation of this paragraph. They confirmed that if another literary magazine expresses interest in "For a Wreath on a Live Oak, Route 22" and wants first rights to it, they can do that. Poetry Southeast advised me to just explain upfront the Poetry Southeast situation in case the interested literary magazine has a problem knowing that the poem will also appear in Poetry Southeast.

My poem will appear in Poetry Southeast in the Spring 2007 issue.


Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.


Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
