Orbis

Post by Ros » Mon Oct 10, 2011 1:28 pm

Delighted to hear I've just been accepted! Not quite sure if it's for the autumn or winter issue, but pretty sure it's for one of them.

Good news.
I have a feeling that she might stockpile a little - they've had one of mine for ages.

Shh! I've thought that some of the poems in mags such as Obsessed with Pipework were actually more unusual and interesting than some in Orbis. But Orbis is one of the main ones to be published in, so of course I'm thrilled. And it's all a matter of what appeals to a particular person, I guess.

Well, if you're in #157 (Winter, I think) we might be appearing together. Just received word from Carole that she wants to publish The Fact of a Bubble as well as Osmosis, as previously announced. Yay!

PG continues its world takeover!

I don't think she's decided yet whether she wants one or two of mine, either for 157 or 158. I think 158 is January, Winter, I believe.

It is all a bit confusing isn't it? She does stockpile, yes.

Yes, I got some garbled email about another poem being 'on reserve' or something, whatever that means.

Three?!? THREE!?!?! That's just bloody showing off now. There I am, tap-dancing about two, and you go and trump me again! Sheesh!

Seriously, well done you. It's been such a delight to see you grow from a hesitant beginner to Internationally Published Poet. Wonderful.

Thanks Ros, Suzanne, David and Bri.

I wouldn't have got where I am today (Mwah! mwah! followed by a dainty curtsey then Mwah! Mwah!) if it weren't for Bri 'suggesting' I paddle about in Beginners for a while (best thing that could have happened) and David's encouragement and candour.

Can we quantify what sort of percentage of our regulars are published as compared to other major sites? It does feel a little like an invasion!

Um, after all my bragging braggartliness :oops: two went in in the end, not three. Still. We all done good, innit.

No, not yet. But I've had the proofs. Due out by early November, I was told.
