A few days ago I discovered a new poetry journal in the form of a blog. This appears to be the latest trend in online publishing and one I welcome and admire. The blog format is the perfect online format for ongoing publication and suits the journal just fine. I was impressed with Breadcrumb Sins, both its design and the quality of writing featured there. So I sent Phil Lane, the editor, a few poems. He published all of them.
It’s not all that common that you’ll find a journal that will print previously published material. But it clearly states in the guidelines that Breadcrumb Sins will accept previously published poems. I sent them one that had been published in my local newspaper and I’ve been wanting to get it a wider distribution. I believe it’s one of my best poems. Phil loved it. Thanks Phil!
“Old Goth” is the title of the poem. You can read it along with two others – “Nocturne: Battlefield Sonnet” and “The Markets” – at Breadcrumb Sins (direct link). Be sure to rate the poems using the stars at the top of the page.
On another note, World Class Poetry is in transition. I’ve got some new changes coming at the beginning of the year. As a result of my focus on moving this blog and World Class Poetry into a new direction, I’ll be posting less frequently until the changes are complete. Thanks for reading!
