I'm pleased to announce that Lise Quintana and her colleagues at Zoetic Press, the publishers of the Non-Binary Review, have accepted Sonnet 24 for publication as a feature in their forthcoming Alphanumeric, focussing on the life & works of Antoine de Saint Exupéry.

Sonnet 74 Commended entry Sentinel Literary Quarterly Competition March 2017
Sonnet 142 2nd Prize SLQ Competition August 2017
Sonnet 141 Published in French Literary Review August 2017
Sonnet 24 Publication pending, Zoetic Press/Non-Binary Review/Alphanumeric
