Out of the Blue

A few days ago, I got an email from Brian Doyle, editor of Portland magazine. My poem, Rwandan Litany, is coming out in the March 2007 issue. That was a nice dose of encouragement.

That is a nice magazine, my big sis! I am proud of you and will go out and get one hot off the press since Portland is just a hop, skip, and jump from me!

That's awesome! Congrats!

Fantastic! That must have made you feel great! Congratulations! :-)

Wow, congratulations, Laurie! Have you posted it here anywhere? Where can I read it, or do I wait for "Portland" to publish it?

Thanks, everyone! I'm waiting for Portland's spring issue to appear online, but it usually links only to selected articles, not poetry. University of Portland distributes magazines on campus and donors & alumni receive them in the mail. I'll have to check on copyright rules re: posting the poem online...
