Remember the Cockle Picker's Wife? It's been accepted for publication by the literary webzine Horizon Review - I'm totally over-the-moon about it!
It'll be published in February, the same month I'll have a poem up at Nthposition.

I've just posted off my first chapbook submission. It sure is hard finding a chapbook publisher who's not already booked up for publications for the next two years. Anyway it's off so now a matter of wait and see!

Thats brilliant Sorlil. Well done. I remember the poem well. Just as a matter of interest did you make any changes to it or did you submit it as posted on your blog?

Sorlil said...

thanks frances. I made a number of changes that yourself, shug and other suggested before I submitted it, so thanks for that also!
