My First Publishing Success...

Hi Friends,

First, thanks so much for reading my blog and for your generous words of encouragement.  You have no idea what it means to me!  As a fledgling writer and blogger, I wanted to share with you some exciting news.  The Burnside Writers Collective, which is a subversive-ish online magazine for Christian writers of all kinds, recently decided to publish my poem, A Handful of Quietness, that I originally posted on this blog!  Although I haven't graduated to getting published in print...yet, it is gratifying to be selected by the editors.  Please keep cajoling me to write!

With gratitude,



  1. Great job, Melissa!

  2. That is SO exciting, Melissa! Congratulations!
