In the mail last night, I found a package containing Words Dance 11. Edited by Amanda Oaks, this publication includes my poem "my sinister is sparking," along with poetry by many other good writers like Tammy Trendle, Pris Campbell, Luc Simonic, and S.A. Griffin--just to name a few. From the very first poem by Ray Sweatman to the very last poem by David Smith, it's a great read.

For more information, check out the Words Dance Web site.

On my way into work this morning, I sent out another submission--this time to The Sun, which is one of my favorite magazines. Based in Chapel Hill, this magazine always has stunning black & white cover photographs, engaging personal writing, and sometimes one of my favorite writers, Poe Ballantine, makes an appearance.

For more information on this magazine, go to The Sun Web site.

Of course, I should also mention that Nancy's Poet's Market is the best resource for poetry leads. The book is available at most local chains and online. Be sure to check out her Web site at http://www.poetsmarket.com and subscribe to her free biweekly newsletter.
