While I was away in Italy taking a break from writing, I had a new poem (Four Minute Song) published by the American (New Jersey) poetry publisher Muse-Pie Press in their Shot Glass Journal that specialises in short form poems. Muse-Pie have been very supportive of my work and I’m always very happy to get any of my work onto their pages. Thanks again to editor Mary-Jane Grandinetti for her “tough love” – I have learnt a lot from her over the last four years first with Shot Glass journal and its sibling journal The Fib Review.
I’m doubly proud to be published by this New Jersey publisher after the enjoyable experience of poetry reading there when I visited the States in 2011. They made me feel, almost, as if I was a New Jersey poet too.
