I sent in my poem "A Feast for Scavengers," for which I got an acceptance from Dr. Steven Wittenberg Gordon, the editor.
I really appreciate his comments about the piece. Sometimes I don't know why a place likes my work. They accept, and then after jumping around in happy abandon, I get all philosophical. In my head these questions start running around: Why do you like it? Which part of the work do you like best? What did I do right?
So thanks, Dr. Gordon.
Let me post part of his email here:
Dear Anne Carly,
I like the moral lesson you offer as well as your mocking, irony-filled tone. The imagery takes me to a bad visual place but in a good way...Cheers,SteveSteven Wittenberg Gordon, MDEditor
Will post more on this when the inaugural issue is released. :)
