It's the only way to get published! This is how I'm getting where I'm going.

Submission: Dylan Days Creative Writing Contest
Funny story...I wasn't sure who Bob Dylan was and I hadn't heard of this contest before tonight. But on Wednesday a girl in my poetry class commented that she liked my poems and just wanted to follow me around like Bob Dylan. I love her lol! Anyway...I saw a listing for this contest after that and I decided to shout "Serendipity!" and enter away. We shall see!
I started this blog as an unpublished poet who was desperate to be published and to get into an MFA program. This blog is a record of my successes and failures.
So far, my poetry has been published in Vinyl, Conte, North Central Review, Diverse Voices Quarterly, Assisi, Muzzle, Milk Money, Poetry Quarterly, Sugar House Review, PANK, and Tidal Basin Review, Thethe Poetry, and TORCH. I am a recent graduate of University of Virginia's Creative Writing MFA program in poetry, as well as a Visiting Assistant Professor of Poetry at Drake University, and a Creative Writing Instructor for Duke TIP.
