So, my advisor (you know, in my MFA Program, remember?) suggests I submit one of the stories I sent him to (ominous trumpets) an Editor. I have, of course, done this before, but only with genre pieces. The piece in question is not genre. So I sit, riffling and re-riffling an inch of my trusty Writer’s Market. There are so MANY literary magazines. Do I send it to one of the posher ones that still takes new writers? Do I send it to a little one? Do I send it to five that take simultaneous submissions? I could just choose one, wait for the rejection and go to the next, but the real kicker is…most of them don’t read or ‘read slowly’ between May and September. Curse it!
