NEA Goal

Ummmm...they updated the guidelines to apply for the NEA Lit fellowship (see my sidebar) and it looks like I may have already reached my goal!

I'd like to highlight this portion of the eligibility criteria: Twenty or more different poems or pages of poetry in five or more literary journals, anthologies, or publications which regularly include poetry as a portion of their format.

Ummmm...if it's 20 pages of poetry, I've had that! And it doesn't look like half of the poems need to be in print pubs anymore either. The app is due by March 2012. Fingers crossed for a few more pubs by then. I sent 3 poems in to Callaloo. They rejected one and the other two are sitting tight, so hopefully that's a good sign!

Did you know that I've sent my full-length manuscript out to 23 different places so far? I've been rejected by 3, for sure, so far.

That's all for now.
