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 Excerpt: July, Part II

I am reading through more of Kim Addonizio’s The Poet’s Companion, (PDF version here.)

I am struggling to write. I see her fantastic prompts, and just come up completely blank. The month of August was not very fruitful with writing, but July was. In an effort to encourage myself and others, I will share excerpts from poems from July. These poems are currently in the race for acceptance from literary magazines. I have managed to be fairly regular with submission.

I know the season of poem writing will return in earnest. Even when I’m not writing, my brain is assembling images and thoughts. This is often the case for novelists, and I’ve heard them say that they are always working–always looking for characters and dialogue. I would say I am always working also, but I am looking for that moment which ties to larger themes—in the past, present, or future.

Here are some stanzas from what was rough draft writing in July 2018:

So, onto those next moments…

Wishing you inspiration, and moments of your own from which to write, ♥
