Publication news

August 4, 2005

It’s been a banner day today!

To begin with, today is my 36th birthday! I love birthdays, and I am wandering around today with two pins on my shirt proclaiming that it is my day (one brilliant purple against my teal/sea green shirt).

Can you tell I am a Leo?

Also, I just found out today that my first poem ever has been selected for publication. As a birthday gift, I was given a Barnes and Noble gift card which I used to purchase the 2006 Poet’s Market which lists publications which accept poetry submissions. The book arrived Tuesday. So last night, I submitted a set of 4 poems to one of the publications listed in the directory, and lo and behold, this morning I had an email in my inbox informing me that one had been selected to be published. The poem, “I Took a Trip to Saturn” will appear in the Autumn edition of “Poetic Hours”, a bi-annual magazine which specializes in featuring new poets.

My first publication credit and my birthday on the same day! Who could ask for more?

  2. That’s fantastic!

    Oh, and great news about the upcoming publication as well.


  3. Daniel,
    That is supercalifragilistic news. What a natural high! Happy Belated birthday, too. Here’s my (somewhat famous) blogger balloon: ~~~~~~~~~O ~~~~~~~~~O in purple and teal, two of my favourite colours.
    BTW, my house is decorated in those colours!

    My copy of that Poet’s Market book is on hold at B & N since before your BD. (They were not in yet in my area.) Can’t wait to see it published. What a thrill!
