I just got some great news.
I came across a great publication the other day, Deep South Magazine, and on a whim I submitted the poem that I first published here a few months ago. Deep South Magazine is really focused on Southern culture and since I pride myself as both a Southerner and a Southern writer the magazine is especially interesting to me.
The editor contacted me this morning to let me know that they would be publishing the poem in an issue this summer, which is especially appropriate since Winter In Louisiana is really about our lack of winter.
That motivates me to go ahead and work on the collection of poems, Always the Heat, that I started.
I'll let you know when the poem is published but in the meantime check out the magazine at the link above.
