My Next Poetry Chapbook
I just finished 3 new poems:
A Song of Remembrance for Mama
My Last Smoke
Red Versus Seadog
all 3 are some of the longest pieces I’ve ever written. Too long to read at most Open Mics (A Song of Remembrance…clocks in at 4 minutes and 25 seconds).
I’m sending all 3 to a poetry contest held by Phoebe, Journal of Literature and Arts.
The entry fee is $5 and the deadline is tonight 11:59pm Eastern.
Now my chapbook plan is as follows: if Phoebe accepts 1 of the pieces, rights return to me immediately after publication and that 1 poem as well as the other 2 will go in my chapbook, now slated for release later this year! We will see.
