Did I say shaping up into a good month?

My 100th bewildering bit of writing in Bewildering Stories is up TODAY!: and Don Webb poses the interesting question: In Oonah V. Joslin’sAnd She Shall Have Music,” does the poem lament the evolution of music or of its media or both? I would love to hear your thoughts on that!

(It looks like 75 on MY BIBLIOGRAPHY where you can get to all of them 🙂 but some of those links cover series’ such as my Novella A GENIE IN A JAM and Armchair Observatory so it’s 75 over 100 Issues!)

22740251-glasses-of-champagne-made-of-bubbles-isolated-on-black-backgroundand since that follows my 100 at MicroHorror, I am well chuffed! The Long Wave also made it into the BwS Summer Review 2015 as one of the editors’ choices.

I am Longlisted for the Erbacce Prize. Now I know how this works. I was longlisted a few years ago but it’s rather nice nonetheless to be in the top 40 out of over 5000 entires world-wide and to see the names of other poets I know there because as my mother used to say: It’s never lost — what a friend gets.

My Name, My Name, is at Birch Press for their themed poems month. It kind of goes with “With a Name Like That You Should Be a Writer” published in Left Hand Waving a few years back. That one is a HOOT but it’s also TRUE.

3 Quantum Poems in Ofi Press Issue 42 just now. There’s lots of good things there in fact so do browse! This is my 1st appearance at Ofi (I hope) and I am so pleased it’s a trilogy because I had another trilogy Poems on Poverty accepted at The Stare’s Nest. I don’t usually write with politics in mind but this… Let’s just say politics shapes people. That will be live on 29th June.

PostcardPoemsandProse — Dead Magazine and Frank Appraisal which is the second in series of commissioned ekphrastic flash this time with Artist Stacey Law. Great artwork to write to!

A slightly longer flash has been accepted for the Summer Issue of Fine Linen. It is called Caste Diva. You will know that piece of music I am sure! Not my usual style of piece but I was glad Kath and Dave liked it. Fine Linen comprises not only fine writing but is beautifully produced and unusual. Buy one and see what I mean!

I still have other work to come out yet — maybe there will be more June UPDATES!

I have all the poems for Summer’s Linnet’s Wings sorted and I am reading for Autumn. And of course The Linnet’s Wings Spring 2015 is still available. Oh go on! Buy one! Great pressies.
TLWSPRING15 or our Poetry Chapbook Poetry 2015 tlw which is beautiful and has poems by Kathleen Cassen Mickelson Sarah Marchant Joan Colby richard Luftig Ann Cuthbert James Graham Barry Charman Stan Long Des Dillon RK Biswas Martin Burke Constance Brewer Laurie Kolp Wally Swist Jane Burn Dah Helmer, Máire Morrissey-Cummins Akeith Walters and Ronald E. Shields and other stuff!

Yup — June is shaping up
