I’ve been keeping a delicious secret for a couple months, and I’m now thrilled to let you know that I am having work published in One Throne Magazine. One Throne is a new (gorgeous!) online journal based out of Dawson City, Yukon that publishes its issues on the first day of each season. That means that my work–forthcoming in their winter 2014 issue–will be published on the winter solstice! That’s December 21st, folks! I’m excited to see the publication not only because I can’t wait to read my fellow contributors’ work but also because One Throne pairs each literary piece with visual art. The editors work hard to curate this magazine and it really is such a gem. Go check it out!
I am especially thrilled to tell you that I’ll be featured in One Throne because they have just announced their official Pushcart Prize nominees, and I’m one of them! Ah! So exciting! You can check out the full list (and start reading the amazing back issues of One Throne) right here. My nominated poem is called “Love and Nail Polish” and I can’t wait for you to be able to read it! (I also can’t wait to pick out the polish colours and designs for my Christmas manicure…)
Wondering how Swoon Fall 2014 went a couple weeks ago? It was absolutely amazing. Sierra and I are working hard to get the photo post up on the Swoon blog soon. In the meantime, I’m treating you to a couple photos of my garden. It snowed in Vancouver a couple days ago, and because I’m a northern BC girl at heart, snow always makes me happy. Above is a picture of my little red bird statue surrounded by snow (with my toad prince in the background as a bonus). Below is the first of my paperwhite blooms, which I have growing in a glass container by my writing desk. They are really easy to grow, you guys, if your own writing desk needs a bit of prettying up! And appropriately named, I think, to be a writer’s flower.
