Neon 17 published




Issue 17 of Neon was recently published. It's a print literary magazine based in the UK. I got my contributer copy yesterday and it's one finely crafted mag, love it! I am really happy to be part of Neon. There are two of my poems titled "Veg Tabled" and "Fever" in it. Thanks again to the editor Krishan Coupland for including me. I have also written them a personal thank you note after publication which I think is a really important thing to do for any contributing author. Never take getting published for granted, be thankful for each one!

Anyway, this is their press release for issue 17:

----------------------------
30 September 2008: Neon17
Issue 17 of Neon--the last to be available in printed form--is now out. This issue features the work of Rachelle Taylor, Sergio Ortiz, Howie Good, Louise Norlie, Carol Carpenter, Janet Smith, R Jay Slais and Noam GR, as well as a review of the recently published anti-novel "The Plagiarist" and an interview with its author, Christopher Nosnibor.

Other personal Po-News since my last Po post:

Rejections:
My chapbook MS from Tilt
Poems at The Orange Room Review
Poems at Bird's Eye Review
Poems at Pemmican

Acceptances:
One poem at tinfoildresses for their Issue #1 in December 2008
Three poems at Yellow Mama, one each scheduled for Issues in Dec 08, Feb 09, & Apr 09

Pending Submissions:
I currently have 19 poems out at 7 markets with wait times ranging from 12 to 147 days.

I have been working really hard on a three poem series for the last month or so going from totally unhappy to getting there to almost satisfied now. I have a certain magazine in mind to submit these to, one I subscribe to and one that I have tried 5 times to get published at so far receiving 5 relections. Another weeks worth of revision and maybe they will be ready to send. Hopefully.

Have a great weekend everyone! Peace and love!

Thank you Nicole, coming from you, it means a lot to me. Getting a contrib copy in the mail is like a poets Xmas present or something, always exciting to get it and see ones own work in print.

The stat thing... I guess it's the engineer in me coming out, numbers, data, all that junk but all those numbers are from my account at Duotrope. I write things down too but use the Duotrope site to keep track of all my submissions and do 95% of my research there to. Find, read, read, read, read, read, read, read, read, read... compile, proofread...submit.

You take care my friend! Hugs!
