Something Good in My Mailbox Today

Came home to find a SASE of mine, stuffed full. Never a good thing … unless it is. (Which it was, this time.) Very excited to have a poem accepted for Pearl, in an issue to come out at the end of this year.

To make it that much better, the acceptance letter came from an editor who shares my first name. “Dear Marilyn … We’re pleased to accept … Sincerely, Marilyn.” Fun!

And I just checked my cover letter and confirmed that I did divulge that a draft of the poem they want to publish appeared at Poetic Asides during the November PAD challenge. So, it’s all legit, and I can breathe easy and be happy …

  1. Hooray! Congratulations, Marilyn–that’s great news! Pearl is lovely, and I’m so glad to hear that the editor didn’t hold PAD-posting against your poem. I hope you get good news from other journals, too!

      • Yes, this IS good to know. I’m getting a new round of submissions ready to send, and your experience is helping me make decisions about which poems to group. Thanks so much for sharing your results. And congrats again on this acceptance!
