Sometimes, it’s all worth it when you see your work published. Today, I had two pieces come out.  But I also received two rejections on my story, “The Castle on the Hill.”  I guess it all evens out.  Here are the links to the stories at the LA Weekly and The Long Beach Post:

In Defense of the Future L.A. Poet Laureate

Impacted School: How One Girl’s First Day Turned Into a Lost Semester

Be on the look out for some new pieces, too.  Thanks for reading the blog.

  1. Wow, so a child in a neighborhood is unable to go to school because the neighborhood school she should be attending accepted too many applicants of the School of Choice program. They need have a policy determining that the School of Choice students will also be the first to be turned away, should there be overcrowding. I’m shocked. Great writing and a great story.

    1. Thanks for reading.

      It’s hard to know if it’s directly linked to school of choice yet, but Ferenc’s situation does shed a lot of light onto the policy and problems with it. It’s an interesting dilemma. School of choice does amazing things. But she’s also paying money to live in that neighborhood with a better school.

      Thanks again for reading.
