One step forward…

February 3rd, 2011

…one step back. Rejection email today. Sigh. I was invited to submit again in their next reading period, which I know from an interview I’ve read with the editor is not a statement they blankly attach to every rejection, so these particular poems didn’t work for them, but they have some faith in my possibility as a poet. I can summon up a glass half-full attitude about that. But first I’m going to pout.
