Not much activity to report for February.
Poetry: 1 submission (Salamander), 0 acceptances, and 3 rejections to report (Baltimore Review, Stillwater Review, Wherewithal). My Tiferet poem, “Chicken Fat,” was published this month. Also, my poetry chapbook manuscript was accepted by a publisher. More on that after I sign the contract. If you’d like to receive a promotional postcard, please send your postal mailing address to me at barbarakrasner(at)att(dot)net.
January 27 marked the debut of the Poetry Workshop at the Kearny (NJ) Public Library with co-host library director and poet Josh Humphrey. A wonderful community is forming and sharing its diverse voices through poetry to help commemorate the town’s 150th anniversary. We meet the last Friday of every month at 6 pm for an hour of prompt-based writing followed by open mic.
Creative Nonfiction: 0 submissions, 1 acceptance (Whale Road Review), 0 rejections. I have been writing a lot in this genre lately, and will shortly have three or four essays to send out into the world.
Fiction: No activity, although I’ve written a new flash fiction piece and am writing a new short story based in Prague.
Academic: No activity, although I am presenting at the Northeast MLA in Baltimore in March.
Question 4U: What conferences do you attend and why?
