You guys! I just learned the Boulevard Magazine named my essay “Goddess of Mercy” a semi-finalist in the nonfiction category.
Boulevard [is one of the eight magazines] young writers and poets pay attention to…since that’s where they hope to publish their work.” —Charles Simic, The New York Review of Books.
“Goddess of Mercy” remains unpublished. Perhaps the loving kindness shown it here will change its feng shui.
