Dear Pratibha ji,
I have sent five of my poems for your consideration. I hope they will satisfy your expectations. I’m concerned with the women’s issues and Love.

Are you accepting poems for the Weekly Blog at this time? I was unable to find submission guidelines for the blog. Thank you!

I am writing to you from the North-East from a small city called Shillong.
I am sending you two of my poems for your consideration. I hope that they are found worthy enough to be published by you.
The first one is called ‘Rumbling’. It records my anger but more than that my disappointment at how my salary constantly fails to keep up with the ever-increasing price in the country.
The second one ‘A Prayer’ is a personal confession of how I am beset with fear and anxiety as the night falls and the hours that come with it. Though I have overcome these thankfully there are still times when I feel just as suffocated.
In case they are not print worthy, I will be grateful for hints on what I must do to get published. (If you have the time that is.)
Thanking you, Jacob Shylla, Assistant Professor, Department of English, St. Anthony’s College, Shillong
