 :catmoon Having a howl of delight!  :catmoon     Finally got a "yes" from the coveted "bug mags"!  I'll have a poem in January 2015 issue of Spider.  I'm like a kid at Christmas, waiting to see the illustration.

Congrats to everyone who has been having success with their poetry.  It can be a hard sell, for sure.  I have a couple of poems that were accepted for publication 10 years ago, waiting to appear in two of the larger children's magazines.  Will they ever be published?  Hope so! Both are seasonal, which might explain part of the reason why it's taking so long.  However, I've recently had poems placed successfully in Ladybug, Pockets, & Fun for Kidz.  I just received an acceptance from Cricket and had a couple of poems accepted by Schoolwide.   I find it more difficult to find a home for my children's poems than I do poetry for adults.  The likely reason is that there are fewer outlets for poetry in the kidslit world.  There are many, many lit mags out there that accept poetry.

Wow! Lots of poetry successes! Congratulations to all of you--CarrieLee, Carol, and Dionna!!  :flowers2

And CarrieLee, I love seeing all those upcoming book titles in your signature!
#134 - October 30, 2014, 02:22 PM

Thank, Ev! I'm so excited about the books coming up ... especially since two of the three are rhymers!!  Happy dancing here.

And Carol... I hear you. Children's poetry feels like an uphill climb at times, with lots of scary waiting on the way. That's one of the reasons I love dropping in here to see people's successes... it gives me a jolt of hope!

And congratz Dionna! I'll keep my fingers crossed that you won't be waiting long. :D

I have a poem in the December issue of Hopscotch, and it shares the page with puzzles from fellow blueboarders, Ev and Guy. So I have excellent neighbors!

It's been suspiciously quiet this new year.  Anyone have a poetry success to share? I'm looking for some good vicarious celebrating!

I had a poem published in February's Sparkle. Got my copy today. The poetry market is really tough right now. I have a few subs I'm waiting to hear from- always hoping for the best.

Congrats, Cindy!

Wish I could say I have good news, but...nope! Nothin'. Haven't sent much out lately, though. I should get on that!  :P

Yay, Cindy!

I agree about the markets as well.  What we need is a new poetry magazine for kids ... any takers out there? (wink)
