Life List: Publish a Poem

Today I got an email that began like so:

Dear Stephanie,

We thoroughly enjoyed your poems “Her Hands” and “Cinderella,” which eloquently identify meaning in small flashes of quotidian life. I’m pleased to inform you that they will be published in the forthcoming Bear River Review.

They're pleased to inform me; I'm pleased to be informed:  everyone is pleased!

Neither has been previously published, though I did post "Cinderella" here shortly after I wrote it last June (scroll down; it's at the end of that post).  "Her Hands" is about my maternal grandmother.  She's no longer able to remember much, so I am glad that a little piece of her is going to be published for posterity.  I think I'll wait and link to it when the publication comes out.  

Also:  TWO poems!  Take that, Life List!


  1. SOOOOOO awesome! Go Steph!

  2. I went back and reread "Cinderella" and see that I loved it then, too. So proud of you!

  3. Stephanie! This is amazing! You should be extremely proud. Congrats. :)

  4. HOW do we speak three times/day and you FAIL to tell me this??! Congrats! So exciting!! So proud of you!!
