I just recently received my last rejction for 2011. For those who haven’t read these reports before know that I pull any submissions 6 months after I sent them out if there is no word so I can keep track of my work.
A few notes for this year:
- I started sending out my 2nd full length collection but then decided I would go with Sibling Rivalry Press for publication so that’ll be out in 2013!
- My 4th chapbook was out for contests considerations and was picked up by Finishing Line Press on its third visit out. It was also a finalist for another contest. It is, of course, out now.
- I didn’t really work on prose submissions this year or photography.
- This year I sent out fewer submission packets then last year, only 87 which I know is still a lot, but down from previous years. Out of those I had 29 accepted. That’s 33%! That’s up from the year before. Each year my amount has gone up and I think the “level” of the journals has gone up although I haven’t really focused on that.
I’ll be interested to see how the numbers go for 2012!
