This is a great magazine and a wonderful group of people run it. I am happy to be included and even more excited to read the other work in the issue.
For every 10 or 20 or 50 or 100 rejection letters, there lies a publication that will appreciate your poetry for what it is - your best work. Thank you, OVS, for recognizing a poem that I love more than many poems I have written, more than warm blankets in snowstorms, more than white wine and scallops, more than any of the terrible pieces I have written and scrapped.
What a validating feeling, to see your work in print. Celebration!
