Here is a writing prompt and a publication opportunity all rolled into one. The new online journal, Referential, has chosen my poem, "13 Ways of Angels," as their first featured poem. Now they are inviting writers to submit poems or short fiction that "refer" to that poem. Here are the basic submission guidelines from the website: "Once you have picked a piece you want to refer to (you can be responding to the piece as a whole or even an individual word etc) email your work to refermag(at)"

Here is a link to the site where you can read "13 Ways" and the two other poems and a short story that "refer" to the poem:

Have fun.

Thanks for the shout out to Referential! I'm looking for all kinds of writing and artwork. Can't wait to see what gets sent in!

Ya know I'd love some haiku :)
