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

Submission: Cave Canem Retreat
I submitted here last year and was not selected. It's a week long retreat geared toward black poets. I sent some new stuff this time. I hadn't written my sonnet crown yet so I sent that this time. I looked at what I sent last year and it's a little embarrassing. Eh, we shall see.... It's a long shot, like everything else. I'd love to go though.
I started this blog as an unpublished poet who was desperate to be published and to get into an MFA program.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.
