So Far So Good


So, here we are, four days into the new year, and there’s already been some changes as you can obviously see. The new look is working for me for now, but we’ll see how it goes. With my restless ways you never know what you’re going to find when you drop by.

Next. I don’t remember if I shared the news or not but my peace poem was published along with the other Poets For Peace members in Praxis Magazine Online. Every year they are going to publish the anthology for the group. The download is free and you can get it here (clickable link). There were so many wonderful poems that it’s worth giving it a read. My poem begins on page 55.

Next up is what has been going on with the poem I entered into a contest. I received an official Author’s Proof back in November to correct any errors in my poem so it is published correctly. I sent it back and that’s pretty much all I’ve heard so far. The contest officially ended December 31st and winners should be announced in about six to eight weeks. I’ll certainly be writing about it here if I win anything. Not that I am actually expecting anything. I’m hopeful, but I’m a realist and I know my own poetry. And I’m not being hard on myself. Beyond the Fog was really only written for fun and isn’t my best work. But who knows, right?

Lastly, in case you missed reading my work, I am officially writing over at The Well Tempered Bards and I’ve been posting there while my site has been down. Here’s links to what you might have missed:



Angry Girl


Ode For The Glitterbomber

Into The Void


There. I think that catches us all up for today.

I will be getting back into the swing of things but it might take a little time. If you bear with me, I promise the ride might be worth it. 🙂

Have a wonderful day!

P.S. How does the site look? Can you read the post? Let me know in the comments, thanks.

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her.

  1. Well done on staying productive!

    I do find the new layout a little hard to read, by the way. The background’s beautiful, but it’s not easy to pick out the text against it
