September 12, 2019 – Thrilled to have three of my haikus, “Solace #2”, “Contentment”, and “Pyre”, up at The Elixir Magazine in their September issue. Also, I am happy to report that I have accepted the position of Poetry Co-Editor at the magazine and will be assisting Poetry Editor Maryam Quereshi in her tireless efforts to bring Elixir readers some of the most amazing verse out there. This is quite the honor, especially since I will be wrapping up my first year with Elixir in a few months as an Editor (poetry, CNF, and fiction) and Artist-in-Residence. Many thanks to Founder & Editor-in-Chief Esra AlNaggar for the opportunity and all her support!
May 2, 2019 – As a result of the submission of some pretty bad ass poetry and prose (if David does say so himself), some barrier-free email swapping, and a whole lot of mutual admiration, David Estringel will be joining his new boy-crush Fishbowl Press and its team as their Poetry Editor. For those familiar with the publication, Fishbowl Press publishes rather remarkable short-fiction pieces ONLY, so the inclusion of poetry into the mix will definitely shake the dynamics up a bit…but in an awesome way. Details are currently being worked out regarding how Fishbowl Press’ new enhancement will manifest but all at the table are pretty excited about the change.
