Poetry sale to Star*Line + sonnet contest

I managed to sneak in a little cinquain sale to Star*Line just under the wire, since the summer submission period has just closed, and early at that. "Sebago" will appear in either the March or May issues of SFPA's journal. Normally I send my submissions at the beginning of the reading period, but since we were away in July, I was behind the eight ball. Anyway, I'm glad one of the poems caught Marge's eye. I have to look for new homes for three of the others.

Speaking of SFPA, just a reminder that the deadline for its second annual poetry contest is August 24. Some nifty prizes, including $80 for first place. This year they're looking for speculative sonnets.
