I didn't submit to any journals in Fall 2010. I needed to write new stuff. Plus I was teaching my first undergraduate poetry workshop so giving feedback on poems was taking up a majority of my time. I've been applying to post-MFA fellowships just like I said I would. Now I have a week left before school starts so I'm back to submitting again. I honestly miss anxiously checking my email. It sucks not to be hoping for good news when I check my email because I haven't been giving myself the opportunity to get any since I haven't been submitting.
Oh some exciting things happened when I did submit though. I got an acceptance from Muzzle and a nomination for the Dzanc Books Best of the Web 2011 Anthology.
New submissions out today to:
Black Warrior Review
Cream City Review
The Louisville Review
The Minnesota Review
Pebble Lake Review
The Southeast Review
Now when I get rejected, I won't have to be afraid to press send again because I've sent to (almost) everywhere I wanted to send.
Peace to your poems in the slush piles, poets!
