I’m over the moon ecstatic that I received an acceptance Monday on a poetry submission!! My poem, “Chained by Love,” inspired by French medieval folklore of beautiful sea serpent Melusine and her love Raymond, was selected by Enchanted Conversations: a fairy tale magazine for their February issue themed as “Un reve de amour: A Dream of Love.”
Here is the cover – so pretty!!!
For the submission, the stories or poetry needed to revolve around a love story in mythology/folklore. But as with fairy tales, not all endings are happy, so there might be a twist to mine. I’m so excited and was very pleased; they said they found my poem unique and they loved it.
This issue will come out this Thursday, February 1! They did some beautiful art to go along with my poem – I mean look at it, wow – they said I could share here, and really captured the gothic feel of my work. How is my name on something so lovely? I feel like framing it.
Very grateful to them for publishing my work! And here is the link to the website with the announcement. Watch for more news on purchasing the issue! And if you like fairy tales, follow this site!
