Her name is actually Nancy Breen and she is a poet, freelance writer, Etsy shop proprietor, and owner of the writing website, Nudged To Write. She is also the former editor of Poet's Market, the go-to guide for poets looking to publish their verses. In fact, she wrote a piece for their 2012 edition and found herself in need of a photo to go with her bio. And her photographer of choice? Her nephew, The Professor. I am very excited to say that not only is my 12 year old son in print, but he even got a photo credit in the margin of the book. Not too shabby for a junior high student, I say.
|OK, it's hard to read sideways, but that's his name above the arrow.|
I want to give a big thanks to Robert Lee Brewer, editor of Poets Market, for giving my son his first taste of glory. If you are a poet, please check out Robert's blog, Poetic Asides, over at WritersMarket.com. He has lots of great information, writing prompts, and interviews. And if you're interested in getting a copy of the 2012 Poet's Market, it can be ordered through Amazon below (my affiliate link) or from any bookstore.
