I know, I know. I wrote about not seeking publication this year and instead focusing on the craft.

But you know what I discovered? It’s okay to work on your craft and publication.

Near the end of last year, I submitted some poems to my college literary magazine Savoir Faire. (I attend Bossier Parish Community College). It was so FB_IMG_1460426479921long ago I had nearly forgotten about it until last night. Now I’m not sure why, but I don’t believe in coincidences. I believe everything happens for a reason. My poems had been accepted and I had been invited to read.

I had to cancel a doctor’s appointment to attend the Gala and I didn’t end up reading my poems, but I did end winning an Honorable Mention! I have photos. Can you tell I am gloriously happy?


The other photos will be put in a gallery so as no to clutter up the post.
