    One of my poems has been selected for publication in Cram Volume 9: Poetry In The First, better known as Cram 9. Selected for publication was my poem titled ‘Submission’. I was preparing a letter with questions I had about submitting poetry to a journal. Some of the guidelines for publication seemed unclear to me. Here is an example…and I wonder how you would react to knowing that a journal gives notice that they do not respond to entries unless they plan to publish your poetry. I wanted to be clear with other venues I submit to because some do not accept simultaneous submissions. Anyway, instead of sending off my letter to clarify the submission policy, I wrote a poem, and submitted it elsewhere, to Cram 9!

    Advance copies of Cram 9 will be given away, FREE, to people attending The Printers’ Ball at Columbia College, 1104 S. Wabash Ave. The official release party and reading will be on Sat. Aug 14, 7 PM at Cafe Ballou, 939 N. Western Ave. Chicago. I’ll be attending a Perseid Meteor Shower Party in rural VT that eve and will not be able to participate in the reading…darn!

    Be sure to check out either of these literary events.
