To those of you who might be more accustomed to getting more substantial pieces of prose or poetry published in more prestigious periodicals, my excitement about having been published yesterday may appear to be entirely unwarranted. Therefore, I will try to subdue it.
As I mentioned earlier, I submitted three short pieces of prose to a San Francisco Bay Area newspaper called Street Spirit. The pieces I submitted were Homeless Tinge, I Told Them I was Homeless, and A New Pair of Glasses. Yesterday, I was informed that “A New Pair of Glasses” had been published – although the publisher change the title to A New Way of Seeing. I didn’t mind the change, however, in light of its having been published. I also find the layout to be very professional, and the illustrations to be marvelous. Both are duplicated here below, with a link to the story itself sandwiched between them.
The publisher Terry Messman offered to send some hard copies of the newspaper to my home address here in Moscow. If anybody wants one, please leave a message on my Contact Page, and we’ll take it from there.
