RAIN! and Announcements

100º ~ the rain cooling didn’t last long, but at least we got 1/4 inch in the gauge

It’s the week before classes at school, so my posts may be sporadic, but here are some announcements.

~ Mary Biddinger selected my childhood library (Waterloo Public Library) as one of four libraries to receive Saint Monica and a lifetime subscription to Barn Owl Review.  I love that Mary donated books to libraries based on nominations and I hope to do something similar soon.

~ In other Mary B. news, check out “Saint Monica Wishes on the Wrong Star” on Verse Daily today.

~ In a World Made of Such Weather as This racked up another semi-finalist nod today.

~ I’m thrilled to say I’ve got two poems up on Anti- as well.  This is one of my favorite online journals, and I am so thankful to the editors for supporting my work.

Stay tuned, y’all.

Great work on Anti!

Sandy Longhorn

Thanks, Karen. Appreciate it.

Justin Evans

Congratulations!

I could not get to anti- via your link. I don't know if it was me or you.

Sandy Longhorn

Thanks, Justin. Just fixed the link. It was broken in the middle. 🙂

Congrats on poems, library, and RAIN. We got a weensy sprinkling and a green tornadoey sky…

Sandy Longhorn

Thanks, Kathleen. Hope the green sky soon returned to normal. We haven't seen rain like this in weeks and weeks, so I'm doing a bit of a happy dance.

Wonderful news all around, congratulations. ANTI- does your work justice, love that cover art. Yay!

Sandy Longhorn

Thanks, Marie. I'm all for Anti-, which seems like a paradox, but it's true. 🙂

Sandy — wonderful to see you work at Anti-. Thanks for letting us know about it.

The last line of "Urban Archeology" has haunted me all day. It's really a knockout punch.

Sandy Longhorn

Aw, thanks Josh. That none required quite q bit of tinkering, I'm glad you found it effective.
