So. As-you-know-bob, I’ve been submitting to a bunch of journals and periodicals and magazines. My goal, which so-far I’ve mostly been meeting-or-exceeding, is to submit to three places per month.
A while back, I submitted five poems to Augur Magazine which, as a paid market with a huge slush pile, is kind of more at the long-shot end of my particular submissions spectrum.
 
Unsurprisingly, none of my pieces made it through the final cut BUT! One of my pieces DID make it onto their long list, which I am pretty damn chuffed about in and of itself.
I’m taking this long-listing of my work as an encouraging sign, and I’m looking forward to submitting to them again in the future.
 
Gotta admit, though. Getting the news that a different publication has accepted one of my submissions – a poem that is part of my in-progress chapbook manuscript – on the same day that I got Augur’s rejection letter? It softened the blow a little bit. 😉
More on that when the piece goes live.
 
 
TTFN,
A.
