Late last summer I started work on a series of lyric essays, each inspired by one of the four classical elements: earth, air, water and fire. As I begin drafting the final one, it’s a massive delight to announce that the first essay, “Each Breeze Began Life Somewhere As a Little Cough” has just been accepted by Passages North as a future online bonus. In a nightmarish national news week(s), I’m very thankful for this.
A personal essay I wrote this spring just got accepted by the Colorado Review today for their spring 2014 issue. Four hours after I got that acceptance, and agreed to it, (before I even had time to withdraw it from other journals) I got an email from another amazing journal also accepting it. Two acceptances for the same piece in the same day. That is a new one for me, and I’m still floored.
This is my first full essay acceptance, and that it was from the Colorado Review is a dream come true.
