Dear Editor:

A rejection is cool.  I understand, I get it, and no worries or hard feelings.  Even a "form letter" type of rejection is cool.  Here's what's not so cool: For those of us (meaning me) who have a last name that could easily be a mistaken for another first name, if the spelling is not carefully read, then just address the rejection: Dear <insert FIRST name here>. I prefer that, than my rejection to read: Dear Vitoria.  Otherwise, we're good.  Great and thanks!

elimae - March issue:

There are certain journals that I LOVE. elimae, is one that tops that list.  The March issue includes a poem by me (my second appearance in elimae!)
A poem by [dt] David Tomaloff, when you read it you will see, why it's special to me.
Work by Parker Tettleton.  And no doubt other brilliant work.  If you are not reading elimae, each month, you should be!!!
