Anniversary, Anthology, and Publication

I can’t believe that Bill and I have been married for seven years. This may not seem like much, but given our circumstances, it’s quite a milestone. As some of you know, three months after we were married, Bill suffered the first of two strokes, and since then, he has not been able to walk or use his left arm. I’ve been caring for him at home. It hasn’t been easy at times, but we hope to have many more happy years together.

I plan to submit work for possible publication in Unteachable: An Anthology of Poets Outside the Academy. Some poets teach creative writing and other subjects. My brother’s a poet who teaches physics. This collection will be by poets like me who have other occupations besides teaching. If you’re a poet who doesn’t teach and would like to submit work, click here for guidelines.

I just received word that my poem, “Cancer,” will be published next month on Voxpoetica, a blog dedicated to promoting poetry. This poem, not in my collection, is about how my mother fought this disease, and the disease won. I’ll let you know as soon as it appears and post a link here so please stay tuned.

  1. Congratulations on 7 years of marriage. In this world where people divorce over even trivial things, your marriage is a testamony to persistance. I hope you have many more years of life together with Bill.
