This year I added at least 9 new publications to my credits list and successfully placed over 23 different and orginal poems around the world. It's been a positive experience!
The furthest away was in the Hong Kong-based journal Cha, and the closest would probably be a tie between Northography, Paj Ntaub Voice and the St. Paul Almanac. But here's the 2007 rundown:
Bakka Magazine, April 07: Stairways In Luang Prabang, Nam, and Sai Lao.
Budget Travel's popular book The Smart Traveler's Passport: 399 Tips from Seasoned Travelers features a small tip from me. The other 398 are very good too! :)
Cha: An Asian Literary Journal: Zelkova Tree
Eye.D Magazine: Two essays: A View Askew and Changers.
Illumen #6: The Deep Ones and Before Going Feral. As a side note, this issue also features Bao Phi, Linh Dinh, Samy Yang, Burlee Vang and the cover art is by Chamindika Wanduragala. It's highly recommended if you can find a copy.
In Our Own Words: A Generation Defining Itself: five fragments (#5)
Journal of Southeast Asian Education and Advancement:Snakehead Fish, Departures, Capital, and Preparations for Southeast Asia.Northography.Com: 6 poems in 2007: Men, Scales, Whatever Comes To Mind, Lurking Jove, The Fifth Wheel.
Tales of The Unanticipated #28: Heresies of Thread, Flint And Stone.
Unplug Magazine (June/July 07) featured 4 poems: Dreams, Rebellion, Zaj, Ntsuag Sings The Blues
Paj Ntaub Voice Humor(Less) 07: I keep seeing reports I have poems in here, but I haven't seen the actual issue myself yet. I'll update this once I have.
2008 St. Paul Almanac: Riding The 16, Modern Life
In all, I hope this serves as an encouragement to all of my fellow writers and artists out there.
As I've said before, I see this not just as a personal victory for me, but it is a victory for all our all of us, that our voices do count and our voices do make a difference. :)
I couldn't have done this without you!
