The new school year brings a lot of things in our house. At my day job, it’s the beginning of the new year. Becky is a teacher, so she starts again. Maya starts a new grade in school, and Sam will start at the same children’s center. This also means that the aikido club I volunteer with also starts up, and a whole slew of literary journals and magazines reopen. It’s an incredibly busy time. Becky may disagree, but it’s exciting too.
After this summer of poetry challenges, I have new material that needs to be revised and readied to send out. This year, however, I’m not going to start with a large send out. There were enough places open during the summer that I really only have maybe two packets open to send out. It’s a whole new year. If you’re writing and sending out, good luck!
