publishing update

Posted by Daniela Elza on Oct 22 2008

Today I got in the mail the Vancouver Review and was pleasantly surprised to see my poem Nelson so beautifully displayed on its own page and the image was fitting and inspiring. Thank you Vancouver Review, and thank you poetry editor Caroline Harvey, it was a pleasure working with you. This is the first poem I have seen in print this year. It seems sometimes so long between an acceptance on a rainy January day and the day the journal, or book comes in through the mail slot and thumps affirmingly on the floor. This, however, was not the case here. The Vancouver Review accepted my submission and published my poem within a couple of months.

This week I will also get my copies of Rocksalt. The launch is on Thursday, at the Agro Cafe on Granville Island. One of those, still, free pleasures in life.

Another good news was that my poem drawing me won first place in Pandora’s Collective. Thank you judges Bonnie Nish, and Sita Carboni, and Mary Duffy.

So, it has been a good week so far.
