My poems to be published in Bluestockings Magazine

Recommended Posts

Guest Charlotte J.

I'm very excited.

I just received a positive response from bluestockings magazine regarding three poems I'd sent them for publication. The editor wrote that they "would love to move forward with these poems!" The next step is for us to discuss publication options and possible edits.

I've been writing poetry for many years and have had some poems published in small magazines before. This publication is definitely something new for me--it's put out by Brown University and is a feminist, trans-inclusive publication. Publication will also be a part of my coming-out process; the poems will be published under my real name.

I'm so excited!

:) :) :)

Big congrats, Charlotte. As an occasional poet myself, that is an awesome indication of the quality of your work. Please post a link to them when they are published.

Thanks, everyone! No sneak previews, though. I know my blog is private here, but that gets into first publication rights territory.

I've been in contact with the editors at Bluestockings. Publishing is a slow process. We're making progress, and I hope the first of the three poems will be published on the website in September. We'll see. I'll update this thread when it is.

      wise words - do what you can to nurture relationship but remember there is only one person you have any power to change - you can only plant good seeds.

      Jani you are right. it would be good for me that I would be able to be with my wife more. As she works days and when I am working closings and weekend we have no time for us. Maybe I'll talk to the manager and see just what pay cut I will have.   Kymmie

      When applying for new jobs there is a place where you are asked if you have been known by another name. That would be the place to start using your new name but as Jackie says be upfront about yourself and ask if it would be a problem. You also have to tell them that at some point you will be using the new name as your regular name and then the HR records need to be changed.    For me all of this is a bit harder since I didn't come to terms of being trans until after I started.

      Agreed Teri. I’m sorry to hear your experiences with radical feminists, both of you. As someone who underwent conversion therapy from my Christian family, I have to say that was the most oppressed I’ve ever been. Yes back to the point. Personality has a lot to do with passing. You can be beautiful and young but if you are unlikeable it’s unlikely someone will respect your pronouns.

      thank you, this really helps!

      One step closer to officially changing my name.  Finally got my wife to sign off on the Notice of Name Change Request form that is a requirement for folks in Ontario to do when married and wish to change their legal name. It was a struggle to get her to sign it. She's still in denial and grieving over the loss of her husband. She was hoping by not signing, she could delay things more.  After explaining several times, I don't need her permission, I am allowed to send the via registered mail and provide that as proof that I notified her, without needing her to sign it, she finally signed it. Saved me the cost of sending it registered mail, but at the cost of some more strain on our marriage.   Now I just need a guarantor to sign off that I have lived in province for at least a year. Hoping my doc will do it without charging me too much. After that $137 and some postage and it should be done. Then changing over everything else in my name. Getting really tired of being referred to my birth name, really looking forward to hearing my name.   Still healing from my sinus/nasal surgery. It's progressing slowly, but noticing major improvement from pre-surgery. Lots of thunderstorms and not a single migraine, let alone even a regular headache.   Hope everyone has a wonderful day today! Hugs!

      We find that (we're kinda new to tucking since we're DID and not "trans" per se- but several of us ARE girls in a boy body- like me, this is why I'm here) a smaller swimsuit bottom helps a lot. Spandex is a bit "thicker" and more resistant to "loosening" than panties are (any undies, tight when first put on get "looser" as they get worn and warmed and stretched in our experience). A slightly too small (but not dangerously or too uncomfortably) 2pc bottom or like Cheerleaders' bloomers as panties or over panties help TONS to keep things in place and DON'T loosen or "let go" like panties can/will after a while. They are designed, of course, to REMAIN TIGHT for hours on end to preserve modesty.

      Shay if you are from Cleveland do you remember a band called Rocket From The Tombs?  They were part of the original punk bands that came out of Cleveland in the mid 70s.  
    • Shay
      @SaraAW   good choices - I especially love Weezer, They Might Be Giants and DEVo (Devo was right - our country is de-evolving)
    • Shay
      oh I forgot - WMMS played the live version - and Murray Saul would rant for a while and end with " you gotta gotta gotta gotta gotttttttttttttaaaaaaaaa get down....(expletive).....      
    • SaraAW
      Nerd/Geek rock on deck for today. Starting with Weezer. There'll also be some They Might be Giants, Nerf Herder, Moxy Fruvous, Man or Astroman?,  The Protomen, Cake, DEVO and more.

      Just right ofr Friday - when I lived in Cleveland in the late 1970's every Friday at 6 PM Murray Saul on WMMS would play this version of Friday on my Mind (Trivia the original version of the song was done by The Easybeats that had Angus Young's older brother Malcolm who went on the form AC/DC) - the other cool thing WMMS did was at 2 PM Sunday morning they played Maggot Brain by Funkadelic....    
    • Teri Anne
      I looked up those two band names and I was shocked LOL Great trivia knowledge tho'.
