My poem for Literary Orphans Journal comes out Monday and I will share the link, and  I just got one accepted into Hermes Poetry Magazine. My line was also accepted into the “Epic Protest Poem” going on. I also just received the proof pages for the Paragram Poetry Anthology where I was long-listed for the prize so I am in the anthology, and as I showed the cover of (Broken Atoms in our Hands), the other anthology I am in has been published.

Nuclear Impact: Broken Atoms in Our Hands is now available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. This is a compilation of poets of which I am one.

Otherwise my life has been full of rejections, many like this:

“Dear K.D.,
Thank you for entering december’s 2016 Jeff Marks Memorial Poetry Prize and for your patience in awaiting a reply. The volume and the quality of the contest submissions were extraordinarily high. We enjoyed reading your poems and it was very close (particularly for “Coniunctio,” with its incredible moments of insight and killer ending), but ultimately none of them generated a consensus among our editorial staff.”

So nothing to say but onward and upward!
