Dead Mule School of Southern Literature

Many thanks to Helen Losse and Phoebe Kate Foster, editors of The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature, for including two of my poems in their fall line-up of poetry. It’s gratifying to see the poems begin a life outside the confines of my computer’s files. If you have a chance, read the Southern Legitimacy Statements–they’re very entertaining.

My poems are titled “Outside the City’s Perimeter,”dedicated to Atlanta poet Rupert Fike, and “If Ophelia were from Georgia.”

    Congratulations, Christine! That is so awesome and well deserved. I love your poems. “Outside the City’s Perimeter” is fantastic!! And Ophelia has been one of my favorites ever since I first read it.

    I love your statement, too. I can picture you in eighth grade on that first day. And Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd…oh yeah. You’re not a carpet bagger. You’re one of us, honey:) Excellent work.

    Congratulations, C!

    Like Julie said, Ophelia has been one of my favourites ever since I read it. And it’s very cool to read one of your new poems, “Outside the City’s Perimeter”.

    Well done.

    Oh, goodness, I do like “If Ophelia were from Georgia” and am glad it found a home in that journal. Brilliant, beautiful work on the hanging series.
