I have two poems in the new issue of The BItchin’ Kitsch – “Gaps” and “Therapy Trees”. Check them out here!
Two of my poems found new homes today!
Read “Dew” at Vita Brevis: https://vitabrevisliterature.com/2018/10/15/dew-a-poem-by-sam-rose/
And “The Merging” at IO Literary Journal: https://www.ioliteraryjournal.com/refraction_sam_rose.html
You may have seen “Dew” before on my blog, but “The Merging is new and shiny. Both of them are a departure from my usual style – “Dew” because of the tone, while I had a lot of fun playing with space and formatting with “The Merging”. Enjoy!
My second poem over at Amethyst Magazine is out now. What a busy month! Read it here:
I also did a little drawing to go with this one, after not drawing anything for a very long time:
I just found out that one of my short stories is being published in an online magazine in October!
This is awesome because I’m pretty proud of the story and have submitted it to a few places but it got rejected. Also it’s the first short story I’ve had published – usually I’m submitting poetry or the occasional memoir piece. So I’m really pleased!
The story is called ‘Mirrors’ and it’s going to be published in Scarlet Leaf Review. I’ve been feeling a bit run down today as well so this is a lovely bit of news to brighten up my day!
