This is a bit late I suppose, but I think it’s important that writers reflect on the previous year and note the new writing that they’ve had published. Plus, it’s Imbolc, the festival for Brigid who is the patron goddess/saint of poetry, and that means we should be celebrating poems :). In 2013, I was fortunate enough to have eight poems appear in various places –
“The Blue Hour” appeared in Futuredaze: An Anthology of YA Science Fiction, edited by Hannah Strom-Martin and Erin Underwood and published by Underwords Press in February 2013
I am so honored to have had these poems published and I hope that they brought a bit of joy, beauty, and/or thought into the world. This year I hope to publish more poetry and also a bit of fiction if possible. I seem to have gravitated more and more toward poetry over the years but I still have a great desire to write fiction as well and I hope to nourish that desire a bit more in 2014. I’ve had two flash fiction pieces (and a poem!) accepted for publication already this year, so that seems like a promising start!
Thank you to all of you who have read my work – it means more to me than I can ever say :).
