For the first time, I see one of my poems chosen and published in the VIII Anthology of Contemporary Portuguese Poetry "Between Sleep and Dream". The anthology is a book that comes out every year and aims at having a representation of Portuguese Contemporary Poets (yep, that's me...). An evaluation of all the authors' submissions is made by a commission.
And this time I received the email from Chiado Editora saying my poem had been accepted (last year I also sent something, but it didn't make the final cut).
The anthology will be launched this September the 30th in a ceremony that marks the Portuguese literary reentry.
Due to extraordinary circumstances, I won't be able to attend, but feel free to attend the book launch and buy the two volumes... There's something of mine inside. Maybe you'll like it. If you don't, ask the Chiado Editora Publishing House for a refund...
