The Next Step

So this is what it feels like.  In my writing class, I have been told I should try to make my first publication something local, even if its unpaid.  This will help me gain the attention of paying markets.

And now my non-fiction story "A Case of Flowers" has been accepted for publication in the first issue of The Polk Street Review.

It's local, I'm not getting paid, and I am ridiculously happy!  The layout of all my future query letters has changed forever.  :-)


  1. Congratulations! The first small step in a long, successful journey, no doubt.
