Joanne the Poet - The Poetry of Joanne M. Clarkson

Three Acceptances in a Row!

After a run of rejections, I suddenly got three pieces of good news! My poem “The Oystermen” was a finalist for the Joan Swift Prize from Poetry Northwest and will be published online this fall. Then The Louisville Review emailed to tell me they accepted “Gutenberg’s Mirrors” and “Traffic Fiction” for their next issue. Finally Bacopa Literary Review informed me that “Auditioning Death” is a finalist for their annual poetry prize and will be included in their contest issue. Great to find homes for all these poems. “Traffic Fiction” had received positive feed-back from several editors. It will be great to see it in print finally.
