"Persephone, Trapped" will be appearing in Star*Line this winter.

I just heard this morning that the most recent poem I've written, "The Book of Drowned Things," has been accepted at Strange Horizons. My poetry output has been limited of late, as I'd been working on an extended fiction project with a deadline, so to have a new poem find a home so quickly is remarkable (and with a publication to which I've been submitting for three years now with no previous success)!

In other news, I heard from my examiners re: the PhD thesis. Pass with minor revisions due in September. Also remember to vote for Lost Books in the PBP finals by 20 July.

I've just come through a couple of busy ones, but I'm free this weekend! :)

(Deleted comment)
Yes, I do think so. Saturday or Sunday?

(Deleted comment)
Yes, Sat works. Wallace Collection?

(Deleted comment)
Wallace Collection is a separate museum unto itself, nothing to do with Museum of London - it specializes in Classical and Ancient Egyptian antiquities :) Would you rather do Wallace or MOL?

D'oh, right, had forgot! Let's meet at the MOL at 11 AM, then, outside the front entrance.

that's lovely news about "The Book of Drowned Things" - very pleased to hear about the others too.


BoDT is the most recent poem I've written, and Strange Horizons has been on my must-crack-this-venue list for ages. Ergo, I'm especially pleased on that count :)

Thanks :) I'd been having a slow time of it recently.

Oh, most awesome about the poems. And what a relief about the PhD as well, keeping everything crossed for September.

ps. I've moved all my poetry related stuff to boneverse so you may want to friend that journal as well as this one :)

Aha! I'll go have a look at your new poetry account, certainly :)

Oh, congratulations on ALL of this...but especially on the pass and minor revisions! HOORAY!

Almost! Not quite, but almost :)

Congrats!! So glad to hear the Crazy PhD Saga is nearly over.

Congrats, Adrienne! That's so wonderful! ♥

Congratulations! That's all very exciting.

It is. I'm holding my breath!
