This is Long Over-Due…

I’ve been away.

I’ve been neglecting all responsibilities not directly connected to the swirling chaos that has become my life.

The husband lost his job.

I was up to my eyebrows in edits for my book.

I was nine months pregnant.

So…I made this:

Capture

And then took a job and hid myself away with my family to fall madly in love with this little guy. I mean, can you blame me? Look at that face!

The point is, I abandoned ship and left Tamara (probably so stressed she was cursing me mercilessly) to take over. She’s done an amazing job. In fact, she’s managed so freaking well I made the decision to step back into more of an assistant role than an editor role.

All that info aside…what does this mean for you?

It means we are behind on the magazine and there will be big changes with it. If we’ve accepted pieces from you WE STILL TO FEATURE THEM! However, the idea of two magazines and an anthology are more than can be handled at the moment.

This project has evolved and changed and we are hoping you’ll hang in there with us. We’re working hard to give you a completed project you will be proud to showcase.

Stay tuned for more info in the following weeks!

Is it blue or black

A poetry prompt | The Reverie Poetry Journal

I think you probably all know what dress I’m talking about. It was all over the Internet last week. Is it blue or black? Gold or white? Just plain dreadful either way? I definitely don’t want to write a poem about the dress.

However, the dress did give me an idea. I love how so many people would look at something and see totally different things. There were always people who saw different shades of the dominant colors. Maybe it’s the lighting, or it’s been photoshopped entirely. Maybe it’s genetics. I think that’s fascinating. The idea of perception.

I’d like for you to write a poem that uses a bit of sleight of hand. Whatever the subject is, perhaps the protagonist could be viewing a happening or a thing wrong or maybe there’s multiple interpretations. Remember it’s all about perception.

Remember on Fridays, we’re having a bit of a chat. If you didn’t catch last Friday’s swing by and join in about what makes a “good” poem.

Make sure to either backlink to the page or post it in the comments. Check out what each is doing and share! Let’s build this community.

The Adirondack Review | Publishing Opportunity

Part of what we do here at The Reverie Journal is to tell you about opportunities to share your work.

Of course, we certainly hope you’ll still consider submitting with us for our magazine, anthology, or Write for Us submissions.

Today, let us introduce you to Albatross. The name is a nod from Coleridge’s poem, “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner” and “consider the albatross a symbol for the environment.” This they interpret as they are more biased toward poems about the environment. They “publish mostly free verse and prefer narrative styles.”

Learn more about their submission policy here.
