Very excited to have my first poem published in LILA magazine.
I'm taking a "creative writing" course this summer, part of the never ending MFA program. Inspired by the city I decided to write my first poem about the streets of Hollywood. One of our course assignments was to find a literary journal and submit our poem.
I found the good folks at LILA, who graciously accepted my poem, and requested an image to boot. How's that for working out fine.
Up next is creative "flash" or short fiction, less than 500-750 words. I finished a few pieces and yes, I need to submit those as well (one thing about the Academy, they force you to put yourself out there.)
Again, the shorts are about Hollywood.
