Have you heard about Ricochet Mag?
It’s a new literary journal, which publishes emerging writers. Their first issue went live today, and it contains my poem, “The Tick-Tock Polka”. Go check it out, there’s some great work in there. And keep an eye on their blog, they post all sorts of helpful things about getting published and deadline reminders and whatnot.

Gah! I loved the “My mother said …” stanza. Somehow I always find myself enamoured with nonsensical, almost-magical-realist parental advice. I can’t think of one right now but I’m sure I’ve read lots of them in the past.
Also, congratulations on having ‘Dancing on Architecture’ published in Hunger! I fell in love with that poem, too. See you at the launch?

Hey there – I’m so glad you liked it! A friend did actually claim to get that advice from his mother – the more real the nonsense, the better, no?
Please get back to me if you think of any you’ve recieved. I love to save them up.
So chuffed about “Dancing on Architecture”, and yes you most certainly will be seeing me at the launch! When is it?
