"Seven bums and fourteen legs,
a brazen ecstasy which begs
the question some of us are asking -
is Peter Goulding multi-tasking?"

Stinging Pants

Okay, just back from Cornwall and all of a sudden I can't comment on other people's blogs. (Well done Titus, incidentally, for the magnificent second place and for the hair) And I'm back to work in the morning. And the long-expected nyet arrived from Stinging Fly

Dear Writer,
Thank you for your recent poetry submission to The Stinging Fly. We continue to receive a very large number of submissions (almost four hundred poets submitted this year), and I'm sorry to say your work has not been accepted for publication this time.
You are welcome to submit more work to us next year between early January and the end of March.
We remain committed to publishing work by new and emerging writers. The full guidelines are at:http://www.stingingfly.org/submissions.html

Very best wishes,

Poetry Editor
The Stinging Fly
