Happy bit of news

Got a note this morning from Matthew W. Schmeer over at Poetry Midwest to let me know he's nominated my poem "Windows" (which was in Issue #13) for a Pushcart. Nice. :) The poem racked up a healthy pile of rejections before PM took it, but it was one that I always did think would end up finding a home somewhere. It feels good to know someone else liked it too.

He's still taking submissions for the Winter '06 issue, so send 'em if you got 'em!

(Yep, this is my first Pushcart nom. First times are nice. *grin*)

EDIT: Even cooler -- Charlie got a nomination too! (And his poem is HOT. Go read it.)

Not a bad bit of news to read. Felicitations, Anne!

This past weekend I went to a reading featuring 3 Pushcart Prize nominees. Perhaps an Anne reading is in the running?

Thanks, guys! I'm pleased.

I guess that poem has to go back into the manuscript now. Hmph. (Well, maybe. Maybe not.)

Anne said...

Thanks, everyone! It's pretty funny going from here (where people are happy about this) to most of my real life (where people say things like "a WHAT kind of nomination thingie?"

Perspective is everything. ;)

Congratulations! I think this is fabulous.

Perspective is everything. One of my professors was nominated for a Pushcart, which was promptly confused by some members of our class as nominated for a handcar.

Anne, Big congrats!

Pamela, being nominated for a handcar might be fun -- especially if it were a little bitty vehicle I could drive around the library all day! Hee hee.

Thanks, all. :) Of course, today I got a rejection to balance it out -- not just any rejection but the teeniest, tiniest little rejection slip I've ever seen, as if the journal didn't even want to waste more than three square inches of paper on my crappy poems. I feel like balance has returned to the world. *grin*
