First of all, let me start by thanking you for your wonderful submissions, thanks to writers like you, we had a record number of submissions to read during our blind evaluation process, all of which were amazing.

I am pleased to inform you that your poem, The Color of Outer Space, has been accepted for inclusion in our anthology, Point Mass.   If you have not already provided one, please forward me your most recent bio by May 24, 2013.
