My First Published Poem Is Here!

Posted on

I have been writing poetry since high school but until now I have never been published. I have done many submissions, written many poems, done many open mic readings, and gone to many writers groups and now, at very long last, I have finally had a poem published in a real literary journal! I never thought this poem was that amazing and I was surprised they chose this one out of the four I sent, but hey, that just shows how subjective literature is.

My poem “French Girl Behind the Counter” was published in Vol. 2 of Passion: Poetry which was released at the Ottawa Small Press fair in early June. Grab a copy and check it out! I’m pumped to do more submissions and get more of my work in print!
