I’m a bit taken aback by this many acceptances in a row. Is it that my revisions have taken these poems to a new, higher level? Or maybe I’m making better choices about where to send them? Or I’m just in a lucky, or blessed, streak . . .
Here’s a different kind of acceptance letter, sent to all of the writers with accepted pieces at once:
I would be very pleased to publish your work in the upcoming issue of Pilgrimage (Vol. 35.3, due out in December). Your accepted pieces are listed below next to your initials.
If this work is still available, please email it to me by Thursday (10/7) along with a 3-5 line bio.
Many thanks for sending your work out to me!
All best regards,
The list tells me that two of my Colombia poems have been accepted for this upcoming issue (theme: “Between the Dead & the Living”) of this gorgeous journal (just look at the home page ). I am extremely chuffed!
