Creating Yourself
I am delighted to tell you that my poem "The Changeling's Lament" will be in the next issue of the fabulous Stone Telling. Which is awesome for many reasons.

1. I am a big fan of Stone Telling, so yay.

2. This is the first real poem I'd written in over a year, and my first submission anywhere in about that time.

3. I wrote this poem to be read aloud at the Rhysling Poetry Slan, because dammit, if I had the opportunity to really use the full potential of slam poetry, I wanted to do it. And? After reading? Several people insisted that I send it to Stone Telling, which I had already decided to do. And asakiyume thought she'd heard that Stone Telling had already bought it! Which they hadn't, but now they have.

4. I'll be recording an mp3 of it, too! So you'll get both the written version (slightly different, to read better on the page; some oral/written things don't translate) and the Shira-has-stompy-boots oral version.

Stone Telling only made it onto my radar a couple of months ago, but what I've read was really impressive.

(they liked but didn't accept the two poems I submitted for the same issue. There was a third poem that I thought they would've loved, but it was tied up in submissions somewhere else)
