  1. Dear The Daphne Review,

    My name is Meredith Bernstein. I am an eleventh grade student at the William Penn Charter School. I grew up and still live outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I enjoy filling my free time by playing tennis and squash. I thank you in advance for your time in considering my work.

    Meredith Bernstein


    So still – so still –
    Transparent Truth deceives
    Return to your embrace
    There you stay – frozen –

    Wind to the sun –
    Hoist my waves away
    Again I behold –
    Truth of the Truth

    Your cold touch Stings –
    Far and wide
    Captivate my entity!
    Unseen Breath – warm me –

    1. Dear Meredith –

      Thanks very much for your written submission to The Daphne Review. We will be accepting submissions for our Fall 2017 edition over the next several months and will be in touch closer to August with a publication decision for you.

      Thanks for your interest in The Daphne Review!

      All Best,
