The Rectangle

Hey guys, just thought maybe I'd share some good news: The poem I submitted last spring to The Rectangle (a national journal!) has finally reached a decision. I'll be published in their 2011 and 86th issue! This poem is the culmination of my study abroad experience in Japan in 2009 (and the duality between hospitality and alienation I discovered there). Entitled "Finding Janus: An Afternoon of Butterflies, Or a Reflection On Cultural Politics," a few of you from Don Stitt's workshop this past residency may remember it as the one I struggled to read, ha. I'll get a link when there is one!

That's great news - congrsts!

Can't wait to read it... having had my own ups and downs in Japan, I'm especially interested in your perspective.

Hey thanks! I did too; it's not always easy going to a foreign country, haha. I loved the food though, even the weirdest. And I liked futons and yukata--they could've just left me at a hot spring and I wouldn't care :]. When did you go?
