Lost Perfection Published on Visual Verse

I love the Visual Verse website. Every month they have a picture prompt and writers are asked to submit a 500-word piece based on the picture. Your objective is to give yourself an hour and then submit the piece using their online form. I find this a really useful creative exercise and have had a number of pieces published on their site. The picture prompt for December resulted in a poem called Lost Perfection which is now live on their website.

Wildflower Muse Submission Guidelines and My Published Poem

Publishing Success Wildflower Muse

Today I want to talk about the Wildflower Muse submission guidelines and share my wonderful publication news with you all. I came across Wildflower Muse while browsing through Duotrope. It was actually the first journal that I submitted poetry to when I began my journey back in April. I sent three poems on the 21st of April and received an email on the 26th of April to say that they would like to publish my poem “Mornings”. To say I was thrilled is an understatement. I was absolutely over the moon, and it reinforced my desire to see my work in print.

How To Deal With Criticism

how to deal with criticism

Today was the first day in two weeks that I put pen to paper and wrote something new. The reason, I was learning how to deal with criticism. I decided a couple of weeks ago to get a professional critique on two of my poems. These were poems that were rejected for publication so I thought they would perfect to send off. My reason behind the professional critique was that I really want to have a book of poetry published by an Irish publisher. I love poetry and for me it is one of the easiest things to write. I can pen a poem in a matter of minutes and I really love it.
