My First Published Poem!




No Thursday Trailer today...but I've got some awesome news I have to brag about! Ready? Well, today, in the mail I got 2 copies of Touchstone...a literary publication...and my poem Zapatos de Hule (Shoes Made from Plastic) is published on page 27! Woot!Woot! It's a more edited version of one of those Tex-Mex poems I have towards the bottom of my blog's right side.

Guys, this is my first published peace of writing ever! Yeah, I know, it's 1 poem, but you don't understand how hard it is to get anything accepted anywhere. There are like hundreds, thousands of excellent writers in all genres out there with MFA's and without, and with published works, and without, and we all want to be published in some literary e-zine or print journals. And this is only 1 of about 7 poems I have submitted to several different publications on several different occasions over the last year. Wow! What a feeling! Gotta keep submitting the rest until more of them get published...
