Essay Publication Notification

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!!!! I just received an acceptance email for an essay I submitted following the writers’ conference I attended last spring. It’s the first time my work has been officially published (not self-published), and someone is going to have to scrape me off the ceiling! It’s soooo much more fun than a rejection letter. 🥳🥳🥳
Dear Katherine,
I’m pleased to inform you that your piece “Garbage Day” will be published in the forthcoming Bear River Review.
I enjoy how your story turns one seemingly ordinary task into something much larger and tragic. As a contributor, you’ll receive one print copy of the Bear River Review. If you are planning to attend the conference, you may pick up your copy in person….
