SageWoman Magazine has accepted a truncated version of my poem "Thoughts on Fire" for publication in their upcoming December issue.
Because there are legal ambiguities as to whether posting a poem on AuthorsDen constitutes previous publication, I have removed this poem from my site as Sage Woman requires first worldwide rights.
Following is some information regarding Sage Woman Magazine (http://www.sagewoman.com/media.htm).
SageWoman is the leading magazine of women's spirituality in the United States. Each quarterly issue is organized around a single theme, which forms the focus of the feature section of the magazine. The thematic nature of each issue is supplemented by an ongoing series of multi-part seasonal articles, and by our ten regular columnists, including such noted writers as Carol Christ, DeAnna Alba, and Diana Paxson. Our readers are primarily female; including women from a wide variety of spiritual paths including Wiccan/Pagan, Jewish, and Christian, among others. Our primary focus is Goddess spirituality; our readers appreciate the magazine for its visual beauty, down-to-earth, personal narratives, and in-depth coverage of all things relating to the Goddess.
