I Am Thinking About Flowers

My grandparents

My little essay, I Am Thinking About Flowers, is in the newest issue of JuxtaProse and it’s a special one. First it is about my Grammy, who I loved dearly. She died in January. Second, it is the FIRST piece of writing I’ve ever received monetary compensation for, so that’s a thing.

If you remember, awhile back I participated in a project called Poetry Has Value and while I submitted to some paying markets while involved in that project, I never received for payment for any poems, even though I had a some acceptances. It’s not lost on me that this piece is not a poem (although I’d categorize it as a lyric essay, so it’s close), but I won’t let that diminish my joy.
