I’ve finally settled down to the task I’ve been meaning to do for a while and that is to review my submissions, responses, and what has been published where. This level of organisation used to be so natural to me, but hey-ho I guess I’ll still muddle along.

And that is why I can’t remember who, what, where and when! There’s just too many poems awaiting responses.
Also, I’m unsure what is happening with Forward Poetry, all lines marked * are poems that have been either accepted by or are awaiting response from Forward Poetry. However, their publication Breaking Free is showing as unavailable and Across the Page doesn’t even seem to exist.
I feel so much better having done this exercise, now I can work on some new submissions to add to this long list!
