Dear Mr. Trainer –

Thank you so much for your submission and your kind words!  I would very much like to include your poems “Celeste,” “the bane of it, still,” and “my pain has tossed me out of the alabaster rooms” in The Waggle Issue 2.  If these are still available, and you are willing to have me include them, please let me know.  I look forward to hearing from you!

Dear Jim,

We would like to include your poem, “The Philly in Me” in our Fall 2013 online issue. As we were debating work to accept in the magazine, we all found that we related to the experience of being outside of the area (in the Midwest or on the West Coast, in particular) and feeling decidedly “Philly” when others were nice for no reason.

Please respond as soon as possible letting me know that the poem has not appeared nor is forthcoming in print or online (in any non-password protected site, including personal blogs). Also send us your most recent bio.

Thank you so much for sending your work to Philadelphia Stories!
