About Tim Ryerson
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoRetired from the printing business in 2011...now happily living in Ponchatoula, LA close to my wonderful (and enormous) family. I have three beautiful daughters, seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren, who I spoil rotten because that's my job. The bio picture is me with my oldest grandaughter, Dixie.
My goal is to write a halfway decent poem sometime...My favorite poets are Robert Frost, Edward Arlington Robinson and Wallace Stevens...I have read everything John Steinbeck ever wrote at least three times

WOW


Blog Posted:4/15/2013 6:22:00 AM
Okay, I admit it, I'm bragging...Just found out yesterday that two of my poems, 'Night Sea' and 'Cottage in the Wood' are being published in the winter issue of Inclement Magazine...Anybody ever heard of them? I'm pretty sure they're legit... They are out of the UK I believe
I don't know if they will pay anything for publishing my work or not but I really don't care, because like me, I think the dream of most writers is simply to finally see their work on the printed page and if you pick up a little pocket change along the way, so be it
Funny thing, they turned down two of what I thought were my best and accepted these other two, so you never know
There is so much talent here on the Soup, many of you more so than me, so why not give it a shot?...It would be nice to see PS well represented!...If I am asked to comment on my poems before publication, I will surely give PS a plug...Thanks for reading - Tim

    Congratulatiions, Tim. I tried emailing you about a month ago and you never responded. It was important. You need to hear a warning. Take care, Carolyn

    My congratulations too. I know from a friend's experience (she's a much-published, often-rejected poet) that it's no easy task to submit and be published. Perhaps I'll have the nerve one of these days to attempt it... Jack

    A big congratulations on your upcoming publication, Tim Rye-on-the-rocks~!(maybe you don't drink rye, or if you do, you don't drink it neat). It appears as if you will be joining a good handful of soupers in that particular issue. Great to see :D
