Petal by Petal by Tanya McDonald

July was a very busy month for me. After fifteen years in Washington, my husband and I moved back to our home state of Oregon to be closer to family. Now instead of gazing out my window at sword ferns beneath a red Japanese maple, I look out at the upper branches of paper birches, cottonwoods, and Oregon ash trees. Once this heat wave subsides, I’m anticipating being distracted by birds in said trees as I read Kingfisher submissions.

That’s right! Submissions for Kingfisher #6 are now open! Please check out the submission guidelines because I’ve changed a few things since February, including my response time for submissions: https://kingfisherjournal.com/submissions/ I will respond to all submissions, but it might take a bit longer than usual due to various events this month (including the imminent birth of a niece), so I ask for your patience. I will respond as promptly as I am able.

Submissions close on August 31.

I look forward to reading your poems!
