I don't usually post about individual acceptances much anymore -- I like to wait until the poems come out so I can link directly to them, or at least to a site from where the issue housing them can be purchased. But I'll make an exception in the case of my recent two-poem acceptance from Star*Line. The idea of writing 'speculative' poetry would never have occurred to me a couple of years ago, but lately, as part of a lengthier side project, that's what I've been doing. I hadn't been entirely convinced I could write this kind of poetry, drawn as I felt toward it, so these acceptances--along with some preliminary sketches from an artist I'm working with-- have really boosted my confidence in the project. It's still a long way off, but good news is good fuel for the haul.
