I’m a little late to the party on this (due to snail mail and changing addresses and all that), but the…er…September issue of Dreams & Nightmares is out, and my poem “Foreign Tongue” is in it! DN has a lot of history–this is its 110th issue and 32nd year of publication! I also got my first rejection from Dreams & Nightmares back in 2014, when I was a wee college sophomore, so…hooray for persistence, right?
Dreams & Nightmares is a print journal edited by David C. Kopaska-Merkel, and while that format means it’s a little less accessible, there’s something really cool about seeing your work on a printed page. There are a lot of fun and clever poems in DN 110, so I’m in good company! I especially loved Adele Gardner‘s “My Little Vampire” and Herb Kauderer‘s “epitaph for the creature.”
In other news, we’re nearing the end of NaNoWriMo! I’m nowhere near the traditional 50,000 word goal, but I’ve got something like the start of a novel, so I’m happy. Good luck to everyone who is still NaNoing away, no matter what your word count is!
