I have been waiting in great anticipation to share this publication with everyone. It’s always such a blessing to my heart to see my words in print, and as an acceptance from Door is a Jar Magazine was unexpected, it makes it even sweeter.
I first connected with this magazine on twitter #writingcommunity.
Door is a Jar is a print and digital literary magazine of poetry, short fiction, nonfiction, drama and artwork. Our publication focuses on writing that is accessible for all readers.
Their emphasis on accessibility for all and clarity so that everyone can enjoy and understand the stories and poems they publish is right in line with what I am all about. I enjoy academic and literary works but my heart is where the simple becomes beautiful.
“Within the cover letter please include your full name, contact info, and a fun 3-sentence bio, which will be published in the magazine. (We’re not as interested in how many degrees you have, or how widely you’ve been published. Instead, we want to hear about the real you. We want to know about the little things that spur you along.)”
Silken strands strung stunningly, a woven web of artistry. Secretions from innovations soul, yet born to place each strand, just so. Elegant economic pattern, drops of diamond dew bespattered. Stops one dead in tracks this morn. Now to face arachnid scorn. To such a masterpiece destroy… A humbled apology employ. Hours spent on spinning threads, a masterpiece of newness spreads.
Have you heard the plastic pull as knife slides across bag of black earth? Have you felt the beginnings of warmth as matter clings to fingerprints and stains nails dark? The dirt is chill. Yet the warmth flows, packed in pots of hope. Have you listened to the rustle of paper release seeds from captivity? Smallness containing miraculous promise. Snow may linger, but add a pane of glass to a sun of spring and greenhouses blossom in earliest spring. It makes my heart ring. Simple actions reminding, surrounded by soil’s grounding scent.
