Reading Kiss

I have a poem, "The Kiss", in Issue 18 of The French Literary Review. Sincere thanks to Editor Barbara Dordi for including it.

If you haven't come across this journal yet, I urge you to subscribe. It's "for writing with a French connection from anywhere in the world", a little gem I found when ambling in Nuala Ní Chonchúir's publication footsteps. Issues 8, 9, 10, 12, 16 and soon 18 can be viewed on the Poetry Library Magazines website.

Definition of Departures

I didn't know that the bitter flower of loneliness when held up close Sounds like departing steps.

Many congrats, Rae! And what a good publication. I wish I could get clearance for my 'Trans-Siberien' translation. The sods just won't respond to my emails!

Rachel Fenton said...

Thank you, Dan! It does sound the biz :) and is quality - they accept prose/fiction/art too, so well worth checking out.

Rachel Fenton said...

Thanks, Dick. That's a bugger about your work being stuck on the virtual luggage conveyor belt. Got a few things in limbo myself currently. Most gutting though was sending a piece I hadn't heard back about on to another publication only to have the first place accept days after it was published! Lost out on some dosh doing that. Hope you get clearance soon!

It's my ambition to be published in a journal with the words 'French' 'Literary' and 'Review' in the title.

Brilliant, Rachel (comma optional).

Rachel Fenton said...

It will be so!

Thank you x
