After a rough summer of submissions and many “declined” (rejections), I am pleased to learn my poem “Herstory Lesson” will be published by Coffin Bell Journal on October 1st. I’ll put up a link when it’s published, but for now, the journal can be found here: https://coffinbell.com/.
I don’t write in the genre they publish, dark literature, very often, but I did my research, read there (fun!), and decided some of my work does fit. Phew, because I was correct. While I wrote this poem as feminist poetry, about killing women, it did fit the genre of dark literature.
(And now this post is longer than the poem!)
Lesson learned? Read before submitting, read more, think creatively, and keep on submitting!
Thanks for reading.
