Wow! Good news! For the second time in my life, I’ve had a poem accepted for publication. Well, four actually.
Whispers and Echoes, an online journal celebrating short writing and poems, have accepted the four poems I submitted at the beginning of June. These will go out over the next few weeks; the first TODAY!!!

For Sophia was written for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompt #103 *Vulnerable* and posted on crimsonprose 30th April 2019
Whispers and Echoes is chiefly edited by Sammi Cox, well-known and loved for Sammi’s Weekend Writing Prompts where she punishes us with impossible targets, and thus pushes us through the gates of inspiration.
Earlier issues of Whispers and Echoes can be seen on the Dreaming Spirit website.
