Good Rejections: 28
Lordy, I haven’t published a YTD since June. I suppose that’s good; too busy writing, submitting, editing at jmww, and recording rejections. As well as recording my acceptances. So many this year, I can only be grateful. I know it sounds sappy, but I do believe in gratitude.
My submissions total took a huge jump since mid-August. Mid-August through October or December is submission season for a great many university-based magazines, with a second subs period opening in the spring. Every time I hear editors speak about submitting, they say, “Get your work to us at the beginning of our submissions cycle.”
