Teachers Act Up!

Thoughts on Teaching, Language, and Social Change from Melisa "Misha" Cahnmann-Taylor

Poems Published/Accepted 2019

I’ve learned that rejection is a part of the writer’s business.  If you are pleasing (accepted) some of the time, this is a sign that you’re on the path to finding an audience for your work. I keep learning not to take a reject personally.  But what to do when the acceptances roll in? Celebrate? Sigh of relief? Move on and wish for the bigger catch: the full manuscript publication? Today, I take stock and celebrate the poems published or in waiting to be published 2019-2020.

I hope they can cohere into my second poetry book and find a publisher, next step for the manuscript.  The book title keeps changing and is currently Gargling Stones.  Here are some poems that will be in this new book in the making:
