I had a reprint of one of my favorite essays, re-titled as "Free Man in London," in Wanderlust, a lovely travel writing journal. They accepted it quickly. It's about being really depressed and dealing with the terrible pain of an accident while teaching in London and how great art turned everything around for me: https://wanderlust-journal.com/2023/04/02/free-man-in-london/

Something shorter was published in Fifth Wheel Press, submitted for an anthology but they thought it would work better on the site and that was fine by me: https://fifthwheelpress.com/blogarchive/feature-voyages-by-lev-raphael I like their vision.

And then The Smart Set took a memoir essay about my brother almost as soon as the new editor got to the submissions. They pay well and published an essay about my late mother, a Holocaust survivor, last year. I had a feeling this would hit their sweet spot and it did.

I've used Submittable, Chill Subs, and Duotrope over the past two years, not sure which led to which.

Oh, and last but not least, Lit Mag News just published my essay about revisions, which has been getting lots of comments: https://litmagnews.substack.com/p/i-confess-i-love-revisions

I think that's everything. :-) And thanks, Becky for the opportunity above and also with the shout-out chance because it helped me assess how good things have been despite a death in my family.

Congratulations, Becky. I know the story of the Uprising and look forward to reading your contribution to the book. It's always interesting to read about how an assignment can bring us to a subject and a story we might never have dreamed of otherwise.

It's not quite a "lit mag brag", but my book Talking Vonnegut: Centennial Interviews and Essays was published this week by McFarland Books. It's a tribute to the work of Kurt Vonnegut and features interviews with Steve Almond, filmmakers Robert Weide and Keith Gordon, Kurt's daughter Edith, and many others, all of them sharing their thoughts and memories about Vonnegut's life and work. I've had the privilege to interview dozens of great people over the years, all of whom have been open and supportive of the project. The essays explore topics like Vonnegut's posthumous work, his short stories from the 1950's, the best YouTube Vonnegut clips, and a pop quiz about his life. Proving that, indeed, there is often a lit mag connection to be found, one of the essays, about Vonnegut's views on guns, was previously published by Literary Hub. When I started doing these interviews about eight years ago, I was just a curious Vonnegut fan, never dreaming that I would eventually write a book about him. You never know where your interests might lead.

One final connection: the first essay I wrote about Vonnegut, Deadeye Dick and the Aesthetics of Accessibility, was published by you in The Review Review. It's not included in Talking Vonnegut, but I always appreciated your taking a chance on that piece. Thank you.

Congratulations, Becky! That anthology sounds amazing, and the NYT article re Selma Engel was fascinating. 

This month I had a poem published in Gyroscope Review. I received an acceptance in 16 days (they are known for being speedy). I submitted to three places total, and Gyroscope was the second journal to respond. The editors sent galleys 10 days before the issue launch. One of the things I love about this journal is that while the issue is free to read on the website and through Kindle Unlimited, you also have the option of purchasing a print copy via Amazon. The PDF link is below--poem at pages 23 and 24 (with a heads up that this is basically the opposite of my light-hearted satire from last month):


Also, The Broadkill Review published my first CNF piece. It's short and sweet (under 500 words), and relates to one of my passions, genealogy research. I received the acceptance in 50 days. I submitted to six places total, and Broadkill was the second journal to get back to me. The editors were lovely, sent galleys, and made my proposed edits right away.


Looking forward to reading everyone's work!

Such a beautiful blessing, that this poem, "Sonnet on Otherness" was published in Amethyst Review, in their print magazine. I chose to submit to them, because their focus is on spirituality. I will submit to them again, which is rare for me, having just been trying to add to these numbers: I've been published 142 times, in 24 countries, in 12 languages...

Sonnet on Otherness

My bones my breath my thoughts my wants

my I my me my mine ~

I throw into the bright white fire

of light that sways my spine.

With power to reveal the real ~

even darkness can be kind.

The night that will conceal & seal,

the shade in which all things can shine.

Our air that birthed both you & me,

& helped our hearts begin to beat,

is everywhere it needs to be,

gives & yet remains complete.

If I didn’t have the sense of ‘other,’

would I ever suffer?

Finally, a publication to share. On April 25, my poem, "Ode to Chicken Fricassee," appeared in Hyacinth Review. I originally wrote it in prose during a food writing course a few years ago.

Brag you say? I had the most fantastic April publishing month of my life (so far), short story-wise, which is good because on the book front it's doom and gloom, lol.

So here we go:

- "Sausalito" - a piece of retro noir was published in Guilty Crime Story Magazine (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0C11XYG7L)

- "Where the Gods Live" was published by Havok - that's behind a paywall (https://gohavok.com), maybe I'll make the anthology, we'll see.

- "Signed, Joey", a cute/sweet/mischievous love story love of art story came on on Apocalypse Confidential (free to read, enjoy: https://apocalypse-confidential.com/2023/04/13/signed-joey/)

- "Cottonmouths" was published in Black Cat Weekly issue #85 (https://blackcatweekly.com/b/I75tF )

- "Bag Limit" is in Cowboy Jamboree, their Country & Folk special. That's a chunk of Souther Gothic (http://www.cowboyjamboreemagazine.com/uploads/5/8/6/8/58683251/spring_2023_cjm.pdf)

Only "Signed, Joey" went through rejections and was in the submission game for a year. I guess editors weren't sure what to do with it. Tender crime? Not literary enough? Not genre enough. Glad it found a home at ApoCon. I wanted to get in there.

The other stories were in "non-simul" and responses came in quick, about 2 weeks. I'm a repeater at Guilty. Super happy to have made it into Black Cat Weekly and Cowboy Jamboree. I very much wanted to be published by them. Their author roster is impressive.

Woof... what a month!

Congratulations on your anthology (great opportunity but lots of work!) and thanks for the opportunity to share! I have a flash NF essay in the Spring issue of Under the Gum Tree. I chose this journal because they don’t shy away from tough issues. The editor (Donna Rice) gently guided me toward a more nuanced and meaningful ending. It took 9 months to get in print (and online) once accepted, but the issue has gorgeous artwork and similar themes among essays.

I have been writing poems chiseled out of dreams. One called "Ancient Seeds" has been accepted by Mono. for an anthology called Dream: An Anthology of Contemporary Poetry. I had sent this poem to several other journals, so once I heard from the editor of Mono., I sent messages to these other journals, and I think that made some of them switch my submission's status from "Received" to "In Progress" at Submittable. I have also received a few encouraging rejections recently. When I received a rejection after submitting my chapbook ms. to Wolfson Press, I wrote to the editor to ask how many submissions they had received. He wrote back, telling me that they had received 200 submissions, and that my ms. was near the top of the 100 that didn't make it into the next round. He said that given a different set of readers, my manuscript could easily have gone farther in the competition. What was even better, he offered his advice about my work. He found my project worthwhile and gave me notes about what more he wanted to see. I really appreciated his taking the time to give me such helpful feedback.

Although it may seem like I'm cranking them out, AMAGANSETT '84, published this month (one year after my last novel, WONDERLESS), actually took 30 years to write, or to finish anyway. Had a frame; cut the frame; rewrote the frame; cut the frame, etc etc, finally realizing a short epilogue was all that was needed. Two reviews in this month, both strong (link below for the one from IndieReader, who has a terrific staff). Also got a strong review this month for WONDERLESS from Reader's Favorite, a less reliable outfit but one that came through with a sharp, sensitive review, also pasted in below. Thanks y'all.

The first chapter of my still largely unwritten novel "Dilly & Mags: A Madrigal" received a Notable Mention award in the 1st chapter contest of Gutsy Great Novelist. There were 21 awards out of 887 international entries written in English, so I'll consider that a win, though I could have used a little prize money, you know? Anyway, here's a link to the chapter.

It's not as recent as this month, but last December my publisher, Cyberwit, released a 3rd book of 60 poems titled 'Soul Songs'. And that's what they are, each born of an awareness I gained 52 years ago when I tried to end my life to escape the living hell of a major clinical depression. As a 24 year old atheist, I believed that death meant extinction: How very wrong I was I have been wrestling with for over 1/2 a century. But the early poets, going back to the Psalmists, were right: we each have a consciousness that predates birth and survives death...an endless soul. I'm a bit ashamed that it has taken me 5 decades almost to share it with the world, but I'm old now and edge ever closer to death, which as I learned the hard way-- a very, very hard way- is not a wall but a door taking one from this world (which seems, to me, ever more like a long dream shared by billions) to the next world--and that is the tricky part I suspect. Anyway, my publisher was gracious enough to let me end Soul Songs with a prose account of my leap, the NDE, (which was far from the 'white light' ), and my gradual 're-birth', a process I'm still going through. Soul Songs is available under my pen name,. Nolo Segundo, at Amazon and Barnes and Noble--the modest royalties go to Doctors Without Borders.

Congratulations, Becky. That’s a lot to brag on and worth reading more about. Impressive.

When it rains, it pours and the first week of April I had two flashes published.

Incarcerated Places in Midwestern Heat


Casualties of War in Jake the Mag


I think both pieces have a little chip on their shoulders. Or dirt because I took their titles and vibes from hip-hop throwbacks.

Incarcerated was absolutely influenced by the Sylvia Chan piece we read in the Cincinnati Review (join Becky’s reading club y’all). Raekwon’s Incarcerated Scarfaces pumped me back up after reading that.

Casualties came from Eric B.& Rakim’s last single which I turned to after this year’s Super Bowl.

Quick turnaround times - I do 4 or 5 subs at once and these were the first to respond. It’s a lot easier to send a withdrawal than delete a rejection. :)

I found these mags on Chill Subs. It’s my go to.

Good vibes to all for next month!

A fabulous month for me, along with many others it seems, including you. (Here's a theory, Becky; being a LitMag News subscriber increases your chances. :-))

Firstly, one for the never-give-up file. The delightful Sari Botton, Editor of Oldster, had agreed last year to pay for an essay of mine for publication in April this year. However, in the months that intervened. Oldster had evolved into a different vibe and she wrote to say, with great regret, that she wouldn't be publishing it and offering a reduced fee for my trouble. I countered with suggesting that she keep the money and consider another creative non-fiction piece that I thought might better suit the evolved Oldster. She quickly accepted my piece and here it is. Now that's pure class on her part. https://oldster.substack.com/p/boys-driving-around-in-cars And the best part is a lot of people liked this story that has taken 3 years to be accepted.

Other good news this month:

- One Wild Ride reprinted my microfiction piece 'Signing Off', which was originally published by the Dribble Drabble Review. So hard to find publications that will take reprints. https://one-wild-ride.com/2023/04/06/signing-off/ In the same issue they also published my non-fiction piece reflecting on caring for ageing parents. https://one-wild-ride.com/2023/04/06/doug-jacquier-reflection-on-writing/

- Speaking of Dribble Drabble Review, they published my microfiction piece 'Tent-ness' in their Issue VII https://www.thedribbledrabblereview.com/ p.29

-The wonderful Natalie Welsh, Editor of 'Syncopation Literary Journal', published my piece about a Martian and an Earthling discussing music. https://syncopationliteraryjournal.files.wordpress.com/2023/02/d.-jacquier-scenefrom-proof.pdf And she was kind enough to say in the Intro: 'Doug Jacquier's flash fiction contribution to this issue, entitled

"Scene from the latest Hollywood Blockbuster 'Not-so-close encounters,'" seems to capture the essence of Volume 2, Issue 2: music and literature often blur the boundaries between the real and the

imagined. As Jacquier's character Edgar states, a lie becomes a truth "if I write a song about it..."

- New Zealand publication Flash Frontier included 'Adam and Eve in the garden' in their latest edition. https://flashfrontier.com/march-2023-ra-sun/

- And finally, Impspired published my microfiction piece 'Single Cell Nirvana'. https://impspired.com/2023/04/01/doug-jacquier/

Congratulations Becky! I look forward to reading your piece and the larger anthology.

It's especially gratifying to see projects come to fruition after a long time. It took me 40 years to finally finish a poetry collection due to many detours: marriage, children, and a handful of jobs. I still have a full-time job outside the literary world, but I prioritized my writing again finally.

Shanti Arts will publish my poetry collection Tethers End within the next year. The short version had made it to the top ten of a chapbook competition, but when accepted on the fifth time out by Shanti Arts, the publisher asked if I wanted to make a longer work, so that longer work will be the final product.

Smaller pieces to appear are the following, which are not included in Tethers End: "Ready, or Not," a micro prose nonfiction string in Reedy Branch Review https://pittcc.edu/academics/academic-programs/arts-sciences-division/english-and-humanities/rbr/, which asked me for more after publishing my essay "64745" in the 2022 issue. RBR was the fourth place to which I submitted the piece.

I'd also taken the ideas from the micro nonfiction string and written a crown of decastich, also titled "Ready, or Not," which on its first submission was a runner-up in the CommuterLit.com poetry contest and appeared on April 28, 2023 at the website. I deviated from a true crown by using 9 poems instead of 10 for the nine lives of the cat who is the central character. I was thrilled by the acceptance letter in which the editor said that she smiled the whole time as she read the piece. It has also been accepted for a podcast when I manage to record it.

Book of Matches Literary Magazine is slated to publish my poem “Into Blue” on May 1 and the poem "Barn Buzzard" was accepted on its first time out for the Wallon Writers Review 2023 issue. I have a connection to that area of Northern Michigan, so I had read an earlier issue of the review. Then I wrote the poem about an event Up North with that journal in mind.

Congrats on the anthology piece, Becky. Just this past week I read an article on how many high school students are ignorant about the Holocaust. I hope that anthologies like the one you're in can help young people understand what's happened in the past, so that that past isn't forgotten and repeated.

Earlier this week my flash piece, Tangled, was published by Medicine and Meaning, the literary journal of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. I discovered it on Duotrope, I think, in a search for pubs that accept submissions with a medical slant. Tangled is about my mother's decline from Alzheimer's, as viewed through the lens of her love of needlepoint.
