5 Poems Accepted for Paper Crow; Charity Zombie Anthology Hoped For by Halloween

Life intrudes sometimes.  Just a few days ago we had the example of POETRY . . . WITHOUT APOLOGIES.  Another has been the poetry magazine PAPER CROW, one well respected since its start in 2009 and which has also carried work by me in the past (cf. February 11 and July 5 2011), which had been interrupted by a concatenation of various troubles but now is beginning to get back on schedule.  Thus late today I received an email from Editor Angela Craig saying “we are scrambling to get this year’s issues out . . . and we would like to take the following, if they are still available. . . .”   The poems’ titles then followed:  “Snowdrift,” “Funeral Olympics,” “Clouds Are Dangerous,” “Everybody Says. . . ,” and “Nature’s Way,” all of which, as I hastened to reply, are indeed ready and waiting to be in PAPER CROW.  The publication schedule hasn’t been entirely worked out as yet, but probably within about a month I’ll be able to say which poems will be in which specific issues.

Also in the works from PAPER CROW publisher Elektrik Milk Bath Press, an anthology titled ZOMBIES FOR A CURE is now hoped to be out by the end of the month — in time for Halloween!  This will feature both poetry and prose, including a poem by me titled “Should Zombies Really Crawl from Their Graves” (suffice to say, if so be wary when passing cemeteries), with profits being donated for cancer research.  Information on this, as well as PAPER CROW itself, can be found at the PAPER CROW website by pressing here.


  1. Congrats yet again, Jim! Paper Crow is a solid market and Editor Craig picks some outstanding poems–consistantly!
