Three of my Poems Get Picked up.

The Arabesques Review has accepted three of my poems for publication. The poems in question are: “The 30Hz Hypothesis" (which was previously published in Shenandoah in 2005), "The Shroud" and "N° 249 on the S.S. Saturnia”. Kinda excited about this as I haven't been sending out many submissions lately.

Congratulations! Now, since you're mentioning this, I hope this is an OK place to ask a question...I was recently told that poems published on a blog could be rejected by journals/magazines as having been previously published, denying them first-time publication rights. I hope this isn't something that's been discussed to death online, but I'm new to all this. Is that, in fact, the case?

Twitches,

Thanks for the well-wishes.

RE: whether posting a poem on a blog constitutes publication -jeapordizing the possibility that it will be picked up by a journal.

I think that your best bet is reading a journal's guidelines very carefully before sending them your sub. I do not think that many editors consider a poem posted on a Blog as "published". However, I have noted that many blogging poets, that post their poems on their blogs, quite often do not leave them up for long. (Yours truly included.)


Thanks, Justin. I've been in the "mother of all poetic slumps" lately. Maybe this will snap me out of it.

"To publish is to make publicly known, and in reference to text and images, it can mean distributing paper copies to the public, or putting the content on a website...The word publication means the act of publishing, and it also means any writing of which copies are published, and any website."
