8: Eight-word Poems—proof ordered

After a cursory check of the soft (PDF) proof, I have ordered print proofs, which I hope to have in hand within the next couple of weeks. It feels odd how quickly this one is coming together. Granted, choosing to include all of the poems from this particular writing challenge made that part of the [...]

8: Eight-word Poems submitted for proofing
