Poetry and ice cream

On Friday morning, I hit the road for Ohio to spend the weekend with my sons Ben and Jonah. We had a great weekend filled with visiting the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, SunWatch Indian Village, Sugarcreek Reserve, Glen Helen, Young's Dairy, Marion's Pizza, Skyline Chili and more. (Psst...Young's Dairy is where we got the ice cream.)

It was a great weekend, and I even snuck in a 3-mile run last night.

I'm still in Ohio through Thursday morning, because I'll be speaking at Books & Co. (at The Greene) at 7 p.m. on Wednesday evening. If you have questions about publishing and/or need to pick up a 2011 copy of Poet's Market, Writer's Market, Novel & Short Story Writer's Market, Guide to Literary Agents or Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market, then you should definitely attend. And if you do attend, be sure to say, "Hey."

Here are some links to poems that have been published recently:

All 10 of these poems are part of a series I've been writing this year. Recently, Otoliths accepted a poem from this series and Caper Literary Journal accepted two, which will be published in conjunction with a Q&A.

The Caper Literary Journal acceptance came after I was asked to serve as a guest judge (along with Leslie Adrienne Miller). This is actually the third time this year I've been asked to be a judge (the first was for Writer's Digest magazine and the second for a conference up in Ohio), and Tammy's recently been asked to be a judge for the Georgia Poetry Society.

It's kind of cool to have the opportunity to read poetry and select my favorites. Makes me want to start a poetry journal or something.

Okay, time to start another week!

Yawn. Stretch. Let's get at it!

Congratulations on the poems!

Pretty soon it won't be ice cream weather anymore and then you and the gang will be eating stew and drinking hot chocolate.

Congrats on all the good news!

If you ever want to help with a lit mag, let me know. I can always find some room for guest editors :)
