2010 has been fairly quiet as far as any publication success is concerned. Quiet, that is, if you choose to ignore the screaming from the batch of rejections I’ve been collecting. I choose to do so.

The good people at Lesser Flamingo have decided to break the rejection chain and have accepted my poem — Anonymous Stars — and it will feature in their May edition. I’m always chuffed when a piece finds a home, but I’m particularly chuffed here because it’s a very, very, very long poem and I had suspicions that its 300 lines or so might seem a little excessive or indulgent. David Whitehouse, editor of Lesser Flamingo, was nice enough to not call it those things and instead said it was ambitious.

You can see exactly how ambitious yourselves in May. Don’t worry. I’ll remind you.
