Spark: A Creative Anthology will publish my poem The Fourth Brontë Sister

Spark: A Creative Anthology, a paying market, just accepted my poem, The Fourth Brontë Sister, for publication in a future volume.

This persona poem is about two Emilys:  Emily Dickinson and Emily Brontë.  Dickinson was known to be a great admirer of the Brontës.  She was such a fan that an associate of hers commented that she should be called the fourth Brontë sister!  (Hence the poem's title!)  
And she (anecdotally) asked that her favorite of Emily's poems be read at her own funeral.
