Hello from San Diego, where all the wonderful, literary things appear to be happening while I'm at a medical conference! Yesterday, my second guest post Define Your Goals and Theme to Unify Your Manuscript went live through the generous poet and blogger, Trish Hopkinson’s site. If you haven’t read the first of the installment, feel free to visit The Art of Reframing Your Poetry Manuscript. I hope you’ll find the information useful for reframing and reshaping your collections. Oh, and did I mention that I do market and manuscript consultations? It’s true! Click on Hire Natasha for more information.
Beyond that, what a lovely surprise to hear that a new and beautiful review of my latest chapbook, A Nation (Imagined), published a year ago by Floating Bridge Press, just went live through Risa Denenberg’s site. Thank you, Risa and Linera Lucas!
And the above photo, I reposted from an earlier blog. When I first returned to the NW in 2011, I had quite the rejection streak (something like 60+ rejections in a row). I strung them along my wall. Today, I'm sharing the photo again. For me, it serves as a reminder that sometimes acceptance is right around the corner.
