Last year, my poem 'War of the Words' was accepted by A Long Story Short. It has been published in the April 2010 issue.

I welcome any feedback you wish to share.

Great poem, Cher! I never thought about what would happen to the words I slashed! Maybe they will get a chance to come back again?

Congrats! That's great!

Thank you both.

Aubrie - I enjoyed creating this poem. The editor changed it slightly. It was fun to think of my words having their own feelings and reactions to being cut. LOL, 'was' is a word that writers cut. Poor word needs its place in text and has its uses.

Very nice.

I don't care what editors say, I like "was." Granted, I will edit them out, but it's tough love. They know I still care. :)

Lovely, Cher--I admire those writers who write poetry--such a difficult form.

Congratulations Cher,
I liked your poem too. I like how words are living things and have desires.
I have a question about how you go about submitting something to Long Story Short. First they say they want it in Word format, but then they say not as an attachment but in the body of the email. But the only way I know how to send a Word document is as an attachment. Could you help me out with this? Thanks

Don, Thanks on the congrats.

The guidelines is that the story/or poem should be in MSFormat. So, produce it in Word with the correct format and then copy and paste it to the body of the email. Hope this helps. Good luck with your submission.
