After some delay, my poem "Chance of Rain" has finally been published by TemenosJournal. You may notice the official publication date of the issue A Balancing Act is Spring 2014, but I assure you, I am sharing it with you as early as I can. Temenos is a journal published by the graduate program at Central Michigan University. As the editor in chief of the Glassworks, the equivalent publication at Rowan University, I'm not stranger to delays. Working with a university publication, especially a small and/or relatively new one, means dealing with funding, budgets, changes in staff, and a host of other likely setbacks. I can relate. And so while I was beginning to doubt this issue would ever see the light of day, I'm glad I waited it out. To the credit of the Temenos staff, I emailed a few times over the last six months to inquire about my poem, and every time someone responded quickly and courteously. I'm pleased to be included in such a lovely publication.
