Poems Published—Adelaide Magazine

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Four poems have been recently published in Adelaide Magazine.

It’s great to see these poems finally get a home. They are older poems, and have been looking for a final destination for some time. After receiving a long, cold winter of rejection slips, it was warming to see this come through. Thanks to the staff of the magazine for making my work look good.

These are the poems that were accepted: ♥

“Out of Bed”
“A Letter Leaves”
“Mesh”
“Grief Bone”

You can see and read the poems here, online.
The edition of the magazine is also available for purchase from Amazon.

It’s very pleasing to see some work coming back to me with good responses. Just sending it out, is a big huge positive, so the entire process is rewarding. But like many writers, the golden feeling of acceptance is truly unique, and I enjoy it, though I like to think I’m not driven by it. I’ll just keep plugging along, working on what comes.

A happy start to 2019’s venture into writing and publishing.

How is your venture doing?

Thinking of you, and your fine works.

Love,
Penney

Poetry Journal: Excerpts from July

As I’ve been reading The Poet’s Companion, I have been writing poems. I thought I’d take a moment to share some poetry journal excerpts with you. Re-reading this book has brought up memories and sensations I wasn’t expecting. The first and last time I read it, I was in the middle of abuse and turmoil. Looking…Continue Reading

Poem and Picture A Day: Day 1

My new challenge up until the beginning of the new year is to draw a small drawing, and write a small poem a day. There will be no quality-judgment on my part, just producing and seeing what I can come up with in tiny, 30-minute maximum work segments. Day One: Female Portrait and Dream PoemContinue Reading

“Momentarily” at Sweet Tree Review

My poem, “Momentarily” is in the Summer issue of Sweet Tree Review. I was drawn to their theme of ineffable connectivity. As you likely know, connectivity is something I say and struggle with a lot. I also use poetry to get me to or into a connected state, so it was a pleasure to pursue that…Continue Reading

My poem is in a book! ♥

My poem “Self-Inflicted” appears in the first release from Twelve Point Collective entitled, “Every Beginning I’ve Ever Written is Kind of Sad.” (Volume I, Autobiographical.)     I love the illustration by Germán Salazar, shown with my poem—it really matches the subject matter well, but also adds additional symbolism. I’m still reading and re-reading through…Continue Reading
