I've just gotten confirmation from Dr. Maryke Cramerus, the editor of The Poetry Revolt that she's accepted two recently written poems of mine for the next issue of, well duh, The Poetry Revolt, of course.
It's been a long time since I've submitted anything anywhere - and an even longer time since I've had a acceptance.
Very nice magazine, very nice editor. She was very enthusiastic and positive about the poems and she very tactfully suggested some painless changes which turned out to be real improvements. It's really hard for me, as an author, to accept ( much less acknowledge) requested changes but I did want to call attention to the fact that here's one editor who really knows her "stuff" and who knows how to approach even tempermental and opinionated old hags like myself.
Anyhow, I've made the changes and the poems (Shooting Ducks and For Elizabeth)are on their way to publication.
Feels good. Looks like hard work is worth something.
Smells like vindication!!
