Hats Off! to Joan Leotta whose poem "My Son's Voice" has been accepted by Verse Visual. Two additional poems are forthcoming in Spirit Fire in August publication ("Incendiary" and "Persistent Night."). Joan also performed folktales, both original and folklore, for Brightwater Senior Center in June and July. Her blog has changed focus to be of service to other writers. It now offers insights into what editors want in short stories: https://joanleotta.wordpress.com.
