I’ve had a poem accepted by Light Quarterly. I couldn’t be more delighted. You may remember from a previous post that this excellent poetry journal of light verse will likely be suspending publication, due to the death of its editor, John Mella. Before I learned of this, I had submitted a batch of five poems to them. When I got the news of Mella’s passing, along with the message that his associates will put out one final issue, I had assumed that they had plenty of material on hand to fill its pages, and that my work would not be needed. So, I was happy and honored to get at least one poem into the journal before it ceased publication. My message to myself (and anyone else who needs it): keep trying, never lose hope.
