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

The good thing about submitting to journals online is that I can read previous issues instead of just using a mission statement or submission guidelines to try to guess how I'd fit. So WOW. The writing in Waccamaw is so image rich! I really like this journal. So I sent 4 poems. 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I started this blog as an unpublished poet who was desperate to be published and to get into an MFA program.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.
