Here's a newsflash: after several submissions to the magazine Highlights' "Your Own Pages," followed by several gentle rejections, Meg received the following letter early this month:
Dear Margaret:I'm including the printed copy they sent with her letter, but you should really check out the real thing here! (Keep hitting the green arrow until you see Meg's contribution, titled "The Actress".)
Thank you for sending us your inspiring illustrated poem, "The Actress," a while ago. The other editors and I enjoyed seeing it. We have posted a copy of your work on our Web site, HighlightsKids.com, and we have enclosed a printed copy of the Web page for you... your work can be found in the March 2015 area; keep hitting the green right arrow button until you find your work.
We hope you'll continue to use your creative talents to bring joy to yourself and to those around you! Best wishes from all of us here at Highlights.
