July's Glitterati

Received the following publications in mail:

Blueline, a literary magazine dedicated to the spirit of the Adirondacks.
One of my favorite journals, which has published many of my poems over the years, including two in this issue: "Uncovering the Well" and The Weight of Spring." Sharing company with some of my favorite poets: Stephen Lewandowski, Matthew Spireng, Kathryn Howd Machan, Todd Davis, to mention a few.

The Bryant Literary Review, an annual published by Bryant University, Editor Tom Chandler and Student Editor Krissy Aucoin. This is my first time appearing in this impressive journal-- my poem, "Traveling Alone, She Fell in the Sistine Chapel" is in great company. My BLR Favorites (thus far): Charles Harper Webb, John F.Buckley and Martin Ott, Martha Christina, Mary Elizabeth Parker.

Bird's Eye reView This is the fourth issue edited by Amy L. George.
Something here for everyone. But from following this online zine since its beginning, I would say that Amy is interested in (as I am too) "a sense of place" and human interactions within that sense of place. If you're writing lyric-narratives, this may be a venue for your work.

Shout Outs:
