My poem, A Good Listener, about climate change and suburban gardens has been accepted for publication! I am so glad that this poem found a home and that editor Joan Fenney of The Crow saw something in it worthy of publication.
I've sent this poem off to many journals and competitions, believing there was something in it worthy of publication. It's hard to know just what it is that makes a poem one you believe in, one that you stubbornly keep sending out, rejection after rejection. Whatever it is, this poem had it. And so I kept on sending it in to journals, hoping that one day an editor would see in it what I did - words worthy of reading and being shared.
