Blogging Thaw

What a terrible sounding headline!  Blogging Thaw.  It sounds like medical condition or a figure from Scottish myth.  "Stay away from the moors, the BloggnTha 'ill get ye."

But it is spring and this year it means that the ground is either dusted with snow or an ugly viscous mud.  Welcome to the long thaw of Northern Idaho.  Or wherever you may be reading from.

This is the start of the long unfreezing of my blog Literary Magpie.  If you have been  a reader in the past, I say let's continue!  If you are new to this blog, well welcome!  I will do my best to talk about writing, poetry, inspiration, and what is happening in the writing world every week from here on out.  Keep me accountable.  Let me know what you would like to hear about next.

To get you moving, HERE is a great interview with the poet D.A. Powell over at Lambda Literary this week!

Catching Up With Depech, er Me

I looked at the last entry for this blog and was a shamed by how long I have neglected Literary Magpie.  What is the saying about good intentions?

Very quickly, two of my poems appeared in print this Fall/Winter and I wanted to let you know about them.  The first is the poem "Lullaby" which appeared in Boxcar Poetry Review.  It won the "Poem of the Issue" award, which was thrilling.

You can read "Lullaby" online HERE.

The second poem that appeared in print was "Night Shifts" and the great folks over at The Cossack Literary Review.  I am excited to say that they nominated it for  Pushcart Prize.  I am still waiting to hear back on that.

You can read "Night Shifts" online HERE.

If you take the time to read my poems, prowl around the websites of these two great literary journals.  And if you like what you see, send them an email saying so.  Send a donation to support the work or even subscribe.

I promise to post some real content on this blog within the next week.
