Oh dear - more success...
Thank you for your submissions to Shot Glass Journal. I enjoyed reading your poems and would like to publish "Vandalism" and "The Howling" in the upcoming Issue #3. Could you please forward a short bio that you would like to accompany your poems?
I did notice a typo in the last stanza of "Vandalism" - should the first line read "They may remove the paint" instead of "The may..."
I should be sending out proofs in the next couple of days for your review. The publication should post shortly thereafter. Thank you again for your interest in our journal.
Shot Glass Journal is an on-line poetry journal devoted to short poetry. Where other poetry journals publish poems of various lengths and forms, Shot Glass focuses on both free verse and form poetry of 16 lines or less. The Inaugural issue met with great enthusiasm in the poetry world, which is reflected in the number of submissions received for Issue #2. So they are pleased to announce that we will be publishing Shot Glass Journal three times a year instead of twice.
Can't believe I had a typo, though. Poor word choice, inelegant phraseology, confused metaphors etc, I can hold up my hand to, but a typo??? Actually, it's not the first time I've put 'the' instead of 'they.' Must watch out for that. I'm actually surprised they still wanted my stuff after such an elementary error.
