Notes from the Margins #37

2 03 2017

It’s been three months since I blogged? Really? Wow.

First up, I’ve two new poems out. The first, Basic Training, rang in the new year on the excellent The Good Men Project. I love that poem so much! You can read it here.

Secondly, the day after Valentine’s Day (hah! I see what you did there!) my poem, The Imaginary Friend was on Headstuff, continuing their “It’s The End of the World As We Know It” and me finally getting published in Irish markets. You can read that one here.

Other news? Firstly, I have completely remade my poetry MS, incorporating a lot of new work. It’s a much bigger, better and stronger book and I’m the happiest I’ve ever been with it – it really feels, for the first time, like a finished, complete book and I’m on the hunt for a publisher.

Also, on a bus ride into town, the name Impossible Archetype popped into my head, and I decided to start a LGBTQ+ poetry journal. Submissions were accepted until yesterday, and the first issue will be out later this month! Lots of amazing work from poets all over the globe, some who have published many books, some who have never published a single poem before!
