About Publishing How I Got That Story

Picking the Bones: Publication, by the Numbers

numbersIts first time out, “Picking the Bones” went to five magazines. One wanted it. Can I tell you how NEVER a piece of mine has been accepted so quickly?

With the submission that took, at The Citron Review, I am sure it helped that previously, I had submitted to Citron. While that piece didn’t work for the editor, she asked me to re-submit – which you can bet I reminded her when I submitted “Bones.” Also, Citron’s editor knew the editor of another magazine that published one of my essays previously this year. I informed Citron’s editor of the relationship when I submitted the first time.

Work that system, baby.
