Fortunately, good things come to those who wait. I received an acceptance letter for my poem "A Kingdom of Walls," which will appear in Cordite Issue 43. Here is (part of) the letter I received from Mr. MacCarter, Managing Editor of Cordite Poetry Review:
Ann Vickery, guest poetry editor of Cordite 43: MASQUE, has made her selections for the issue, and I'm happy to report that she would like to include your poem:
'A Kingdom of Walls'
Congratulations! I look forward to publishing it.
Shortly, I'll be sending along a link for you to proof your poem online. The issue will publish on 1 September 2013.
It's an honor to be included. I still have stars in my eyes. This poem is among the new experiments I've been working on, combining elements of fantasy and science fiction to my poetry. Looks like I'm going to keep this up!
