SQUEEE! A poet?



SQUEEE!!!

I wanted to share with you all that I am to be published in the Fall 2010 issue of the
Rose and Thorn Journal. 

This will be my first piece of poetry published and I am VERY excited. My work will be available at http://www.roseandthornjournal.com/  on the Rose and Thorn website from Oct 15th 2010.

If you are a writer and would like to submit work to the Rose and Thorn journal check out their submission guidelines found below.

IN OTHER NEWS:

The winner of my 'A case for Sad Books Competition is Wendy Paine Miller. Find her blog All in a Day's Thought here http://thoughtsthatmove.blogspot.com/

To enter the comp you had to post another good reason why we need sad books. Wendy said:
"I like sad books. Sometimes reading one is the only thing that can spring my tears from their locked place in my soul."
~ Wendy


 I couldn't agree more. Tears do indeed sometimes get locked. Oh, the value of sad books!
Wendy, please email me your address so I can get your copy of Michael Rosen's Book into the mail ASAP.

Thanks to all who entered.

What about you? Share with me your SQUEEEEE! for the week.

  17. Tab, so exciting about the poem! Wee! Good job, girl! Also, I tend to read and write sad and hopeful. Drawn to it in writing and reading. There's definitely a place for us in the world. We need to process and free ourselves and others from pain. That's the only way -- bringing it to the light! Thanks so much for stopping by this morning. I love seeing your butterfly in my comments box. :)
