For the first time I can hold one of my recent publications in my hand, and not just because I printed it off the internet! I am a contributing writer in The Polk Street Review "Noblesville's Only Literary Magazine", available at The Wild Bookstore in Noblesville, IN. It's been a great journey, not just for me but for the creators, Bill Kenley and Kurt Meyer. When I heard about this project I'd just begun submitting stories and articles for a couple of months, finally ready to do what I'd been putting off for so long, but I'd had no luck yet. I wrote "The Case of Flowers" specifically for this publication, and when I learned I had been accepted, it really helped my confidence and since then I've had 3 paid publications in Windy City Times.
I already have an idea for next year's Polk Street Review, and hope it continues in it's success!
