Submissions update

Good news and bad news!

Quick update first of all to my October ‘working on, waiting on’ post: Poetry London – standard rejection slip. Shearsman – standard rejection email. The North – a very nice personal reply, but no. Envoi – yes (yay!).

I’ve also just heard that The Interpreter’s House (now edited by Martin Malone and with a shiny new website amongst other things) is taking one of the poems I wrote at Ty Newydd, which I’m very pleased about. It’s a bit of an homage to Ian Duhig. Martin also leaps right to the top of the ‘speed of response’ chart, having replied within a few days. Douze points!

After a sending spree I’ve currently got 6 poems out to Ambit, 3 to Antiphon, 3 to Lighthouse and 3 to Poetry Review. Plus a number of pamphlet submissions. Will post updates to all this as and when.

  1. Gosh, you’re so busy! Congratulations (capital C) and commiserations. Looking forward to reading your new poems in the mags I subscribe to 🙂

  2. I’ve just read your post about Ty Newydd, as I’m going there myself in a weeks time, to do the ‘Writing in Healtha nd Social Care’ course. And I know Jenny Lewis as a wonderful tutor!

    I’m impressed by the number of your submissions. I shall have to kick myself up the proverbial….

    • Haha! Well the best way to deal with a rejection I find is to always have something ‘out there’… Thanks for commenting, hope you have a good time at Ty Newydd. It’s certainly a special place.
