So, I found out that Stephen F. Austin State University, where I attend, is pending approval of a new academic journal for creative writers that will be printed annually and will accept poetry, both fiction and non-fiction, and critical essays. I am very excited about submitting and the possibility of some of my work getting published. I have some pieces in mind and am currently waiting anxiously for the submission period to open. This could be a great opportunity for me to break the ice. Cross your fingers.
I will post again later in the week with some more creative writing; school and work have kept me pretty busy, but stay tuned.
