I'm delighted to have my poem "1942 and We Tapped" included in the second issue of Fifth Wednesday Journal.
Fellow ITWS poet Jason Fraley also has a poem in this issue.
This is a fantastic new magazine stuffed with enough stories, poems, and nonfiction to suit every taste, as well as visually satisfying black and white photos. You can find this review of the first issue at New Pages.
My poem "Dr. Zhoudou's Cabinet of Hypnosis and Broken Hearts" can be found in the new issue (Volume 9) of Cider Press Review.
Sarah Sloat, another ITWS poet, is also represented.
You may remember that I reviewed Quinn Rennerfeldt's poem "Mona Lisa" from Cider Press Review Volume 8 for Kelly Spitzer's ABC Showcase last summer. Cider Press is one of my favorite poetry magazines and I'm thrilled to be a part of it.
Finally, I'm absolutely ecstatic to have two poems in the latest issue of Poet Lore: "Paper Birds" and "Postcard from Shambhala." This is my second appearance in Poet Lore, a journal that I feel embodies everything great about poetry.
I'm joined in this issue by yet another ITWS poet, Nathan McClain, who was also included in the same previous issue of Poet Lore as myself. We seem to be following one another, which suits me just fine as he is an oustanding poet and I'm honored to be in such great company.
Probably everyone reading my blog already knows this, but just in case there are any new readers, let me point out again that my work is published under the pen-name Ann Walters. There's a lot of great stories and poems in these journals. If you can get your hands on a copy, I hope you'll give each one a read!
