Skiing, Surfing, Journal Searching, and Jennifer Bullis

Jennifer-Bullis_sq-672x372So, since our gathering here to sing “Auld Lang Syne,” I’ve been working on one of the chapbook manuscripts. Last night I sent that out, after editing and paring it down from 20 to 16 more solid poems in a better order. That’s two chapbooks out there circling the contest world, and one more in the works. That’s good, Self. Very good. Keep at it.

Also good is the fact that I’ve been working on some new writing. I can’t say I’ve actually finished any new poems, but I have several new lines and stanzas that I am chasing around my notebook pages, hoping to see some things come together.

So I haven’t submitted to any journals in the last couple of months, and I figured I should be doing more research to that end. I’ve liked Cider Press Review when I checked it out in the past, so I returned to it last night and serendipitously found a poem there written by my poet-blogging buddy Jennifer Bullis–How delightful! Good job Cider Press Review. I approve.

    Congrats on the new completed manuscript!


    1. Thanks! I should post a picture, though it isn’t a great quality one, that I had up on facebook, all the pages spread across my table while I was sorting through them.


  2. David! What a delightful surprise to see my shiny pink face on your blog. Thanks for the shout-out!

    More importantly, I’m thrilled to hear you’re sending out your new chapbook manuscripts. What a wonderful project to begin the new year with–my fingers are crossed for them to find publishers! And new poems: excellent, always.

    With gratitude,
