Other voices

Sometimes I kind of like it when I'm sick because of my other voice, the deep, husky one that makes me sound like I smoke three packs a day. I guess I can be squeaky at times. The other voice isn't squeaky. It's raspy.

Right now isn't one of those times. I'm not sure if I have a cold or allergies, but I want my old squeaks back, please.

Did you check out the new issue of Hobble Creek Review yet?

I'm putting together a little anthology for my MFA poetry workshop folks, and totally digging the DYI publishing thing, even though I'm really confused about page numbers right now.

Stamp prices are going up on my birthday. Thank you, USPS! I really need to send some stuff out this week, or else I will miss my chance to be rejected (again) by Adam Deutsch, which is always a pleasure.

Thanks for the plug. With the preparation of the next issue, I will be adding the archives link, so your work will still have a place.

I often express compassion though tender phrases like "Thanks for submitting your work" and "We're sorry this one wasn't right for us." In fact, sometimes when I get off the phone with my own mother, I say, "We appreciate your interest in our magazine, and wish you the best of luck placing your work elsewhere." She kisses her phone receiver, and knows I'll talk to her tomorrow....

Don't think of it as rejection. Think of it as holding off simply for the excitement of the chase.

What's RHINO's address again?

The best way to figure out page numbers is to make up mock-up. Just print the pages as you normally would (I'm not certain if you're doing a folded booklet-chapbook thing or not) and write in the pages. Then, you figure out what poems are going where. All that you do is write in the page numbers & take the booklet apart. Then, you'll know which page numbers go where.

Backchannell me at jeff.newberry@gmail.com if you want me to try to untangle this further.

Of course, you've more than likely already figured this out ...
