i don’t think any of my stuff is finished. i can always go back and edit and edit and edit and make my stuff better ya feelz.
i know that i’m ready to post on tumblr mostly when i’m tired of reworking a piece and i think it’s as good as it’s gonna get at that particular time. :]
next time someone tells you Muslim countries oppress women, let them know Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Turkey, Kosovo, Kyrgyzstan, and Senegal have all had female Presidents or Prime Ministers and 1/3rd of Egypt’s parliament is female but the US has yet to even have a female vice president and can’t say “vagina” when discussing female reproductive rights
i’m basically the only person who sees your biography! the people who are actually judging your work don’t know your name, your biography, your age, your anything. they only see the piece.
wtr’s mission is to publish writers and artists who have incredible work but maybe not so many credentials alongside established artists and writers. we don’t care about who you are, where you’re from or what you do. if you’ve got inventive, igniting work, we want it. :]
An Interview with Sojourner Abehee: Shedding Infinite Light
"Sojourner Abehee writes poetry that haunts. Her writing explores the dynamic between immigrants and Americans, with the latter painted as blind to the struggles the former endures. Sojourner writes to inform and to wake up the people who pretend that there is no corruption or abuse in the relationship between foreigners and their new homes. She sheds light where most cast darkness, and it has been a pleasure reading her work, and learning more about her artistic process."

we hold first publishing rights, which means no other journal, anthology or zine is allowed to publish the work before we do. after we publish it, either online or in print, you can do whatever you want with it.
it’s proper writer etiquette to state that it’s been published in wtr if you plan to republish it and you can get in loads of trouble if you try to republish a piece without letting the journal know it’s been published before. :]
not sure. poetry isn’t an equation. if you put in the work and effort, you will see improvement but there’s no actual way to determine when/how. keep at it though~
