Empirical Magazine

Post by delph_ambi » Tue May 29, 2012 9:58 pm

I'm delighted to have had a poem accepted for Empirical Magazine, who describe themselves thus: 'A literary and current affairs magazine with the openness and pioneering spirit of the Pacific Northwest, Empirical aspires for truth by boldly introducing thought-provoking points of view and new paradigms. A forum for discourse on contemporary issues, the magazine is "radically empirical" in considering the broad range of human experience.'

Hello, Catherine . . . congratulations!

The link you provided is very interesting. And, of course, their "mission statement" is irresistible.
Any chance of seeing your poem? - This mag seems to be print-only, US-only.
At any rate, they're lucky to have one by you.

Thank you Jane! I've had to sign a contract for this one giving them rights to the poem for the time being, so can't post it anywhere for now unfortunately. That's the one down side to paying markets, of course. Nice for the poet to get financial reward, but often harder for the casual reader to come across the poems.

They've sent me two copies of the magazine, and a cheque for $5. I took the cheque down the bank and spent a while watching the poor girl dealing with it trying to work out how to fill the form in so that it could slip seamlessly into my account without me being charged $30 or something for the privilege. I think she got it right.

I'm impressed by the magazine. They've picked two photos to illustrate my poem which prove they actually read it - I wouldn't have known how to illustrate it myself, but they got it spot on.

In other, unrelated news, there was a nice piece about me on the 'New Sun Rising' blog the other day. Here's the link: http://storiesforjapan.blogspot.co.uk/2 ... munds.html
