new publications & other good news


After an email from a reader I realized I hadn’t put much effort into updating this site on a regular basis. For those wondering, I’m definitely still writing new stuff. However, much of my effort has been focused on a novel that I discussed in some early posts on this website.

Today I sent out close to 200 poetry and flash fiction submissions to some magazines I found on Duotrope. I have received replies from a few already, and some new poems and short stories of mine will be out later this summer and into the fall.

A couple of shorter poems that don’t fit in with the large batch I sent out for publication will be made available on this site if they aren’t taken anywhere.

I’d like to use my writing Twitter (@samuelswauger) a lot more frequently, but I’m not sure what to post there. I’m not really into social media.

Some book reviews and essays are in the not-so-distant future for this blog, too. In short, I’m not dead, and a lot is on the way. Stay tuned.
