That’s about all the writing news for now!
One of my poems was just accepted by the magazine Maintenant. Maintenant is an annual magazine of contemporary DADA art and literature. I am so excited to be in this. The issue comes out in June, but I have a sneak peak for you of the cover. My piece will be in here!
As mentioned previously, I have some new work coming out in literary journals. One of them came out today and has two of my poems in it! It isn’t free so I can’t show you the poetry but its a great journal so support literary efforts and buy a copy if you can! I can show you the cover though! They have published my poems Emergence and Green Language. The magazine is called Ink In Thirds. If you buy the print version, you get the digital version free!

I won an Honorable Mention for New Millennium Writings POETRY Award. This means I did not win or make finalist but I did make honorable mention out of tons of people and poetry. The list is below. Waaaaaay down you will see K.D. Rose. Also I have included a Wikipedia Blurb about New Millennium Writings. They are a very old established Poetry Magazine. This is very cool!
