I just submitted 4 pieces here. They rejected my stuff last year but I'm sending new stuff that I like better this time so I hope that makes a difference. I read the poetry submissions that made it last year and....whoa! Imagery and lyricism is key here. Beautiful stuff.
I think I'm ready to do some more revising now. When I read and see that someone got the perfect combination of imagery and lyricism in a piece, it just makes me want to go back and make my poems flow better. Submitting makes me really look at what I'm sending out. I get so self-conscious that I let go of the idea that my pieces are "done". I think that's good. So this is my last submission for awhile.
We shall see!
