Word Riot is publishing self’s piece “Devotions” in the Oct. 15 issue! Will send along the link shortly.
Since self had to send a bio in which she listed her most recent publications, she thought she’d make that the subject of today’s post. So here they are, m’dears! A short list of self’s most recent work.
- “Wavering” in LITnIMAGE
- “If” and “The Seeker of Buried Treasure” in Our Own Voice
- “Flight” in Prism International
- “Homeopathy” in The Asian American Literary Review
- “Jesters” in Used Furniture Review
- “Stonehenge/ Pacifica” in Wigleaf
Self got a rejection from One Story today. She likes to think it was an encouraging rejection.
In 10 submissions to One Story, she’s only gotten two of these encouraging ones: the first one was for, self thinks, “Magellan’s Mirror.”
She began submitting to them in 2006, and thereafter managed to submit — on the average — about two submissions a year.
Here’s what her “encouraging” rejection said:
Thank you for sending us ________. Unfortunately this particular piece was not a right fit for One Story, but we were very impressed by your writing. We hope that you will feel encouraged by this short note and send us something else.
We look forward to reading more.
The Editors of One Story
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
