Before I sign off, I wanted to mention my feeling about submissions. I love submitting my work to literary magazines. In fact, I love it so much, I even love the rejections. What I realized at some point is that every rejection means I’m closer to an acceptance. I know that if I’m going to have anything accepted, getting rejected is part of the process.
Happy submitting, y’all, and good luck,
