Another rejection - poetry this time


After the joy of Cavan Window Publications acceptance, I've just had a rejection from Jan at Envoi magazine. I would really like to break into the UK poetry scene. I feel a lot of my poetry is more English than Irish in outlook. I've only had three poems published outside Ireland
Newfoundland anthology with Irish writers
coffeehouse (Wales - editor the aforementioned Jan)
Abridged - Derry (NI)

On the plus side, my blog is featured on the Poetry Ireland website and weekly newsletter - how cool is that! I wonder how it will affect my viewer stats?

And Do The Write Thing is number 19 in this weeks mass market fiction bestseller list. (That's up from last week!)

Rejections are really hard, but congratulations on your other good news. Do you primarily write poetry?

Thanks for visiting my blog - new visitors are always great to meet.

Hi Anna,

I write poetry and fiction mainly. I find different thoughts and things I want to say fit into different types of writing. I have also tried radio plays, often adapted from my short stories, and a couple of short stage plays.
