I submitted four poems to Rattle magazine…

I just submitted four poems to Rattle magazine this morning through Submittable. I went on the Rattle magazine website and they said they were looking for poems written by poets with mental illness in particular so I said I’ll send in four poems and see what happens. I will hear from Rattle sometime next month in January of 2017. I enjoy writing poems. I have a chapbook.  I submitted another chapbook length manuscript to Cave Canem this past September of 2016. I am excited hoping I’ll get any of the four poems I submitted through Submittable accepted and published. I hope Cave Canem chooses my chapbook manuscript to publish!
