75º ~ yesterday's stormy skies refused to rain, today's offer the same tantalizing hope with little promise from the weather forecast
Today's good news is thanks to and welcomed with my cousin, Marta Ferguson, whom I wrote about here. Two weeks ago, Marta emailed to let me know that Spillway, a journal with which I was unfamiliar, was calling for submissions on the theme of family, and they were especially interested in reading poems written by family members. The deadline was 8/31, so we did a quick exchange of poems to settle on our choices. Then, Marta put the submission packet together and sent it off to editor, Susan Terris. Last night we received the good news that we were in!

Since learning about all of this, I've read up on the organization and the journal and read several of Terris' poems online. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more of her work and learning more about Tebot Bach.
