Last year, I submitted "The Beauty College Student" for publication in that on-line poetry journal. Tonight the poem appears in the Winter 2005 issue of the magazine, available on-line. I felt that this poem was a winner when I wrote it. I am pleased to see it published, because it is in the "light, mildly comic free verse" form which is the most fun for me to write as a poet. I sing the body suburbia.
For those who might enjoy a trip back to academia, via Beauty College, the poem may be read on-line at
I really like Sarah Sloat's "Waterfalls" in this issue, as well, and encourage folks to read the rest of the poets in this magazine. The folks at Fairfield Review run a really professional operation, and also save the world in their day jobs, so it's a fun thing that I got published there.
This energizes me to resume submitting for publication. I'm also eager to help others follow through on the writing project posts elsewhere in this journal. But tonight I am just pleased that someone was kind enough to publish one of mine.
