Monday Poetry Prompt #26: Publishing did not go over so well as I hoped.
- Artists are intimidated, in general, about sending works to literary magazines.
- Artists don’t like literary magazines.
- Literary magazines are the DEVIL.
Still, at least one of you did brave the literary waters and submitted pieces to literary magazines.
Bastet submitted her piece, Blitz Poem, to The New Yorker, which in my opinion is probably one of the most intimidating magazines/e-zines to submit to, if only for their standing in literary circles. She even got a response back! While it was only a response indicating that it’ll take upwards to 3 months for them to decide whether or not to publish her piece, that was more than what I got the first time I submitted to The New Yorker, so I’ve chosen to take that as a good sign indeed.
Admittedly, I didn’t submit anything this time around. I was going to submit a poem. Let’s just say you can add me as a reason that Artists are intimidated, in general… as a lesson learned.
That’s right. Sahm King is sometimes afraid to submit work to literary magazines.
All the same, for those of you who read and enjoyed the prompt, thank You for checking out. See you Monday!
