September is here, folks and that means it’s time to celebrate Labor Day by expending a bit of my labor on my writing career. All this month, I will be working on my second Submission Bonanza!
In my first Submission Bonanza! I racked up a few rejections, got some things published (more info to come on some of those things as the publications come out!), and learned a whole lot. It was incredibly successful in more than just my initial idea that I would start racking up the rejections to get my work out there. I am reading more critically and closely. I found lots of new magazines. I feel part of a larger literary conversation. I am inspired to write more. Also, I am inspired to keep up with submitting and submit more.
Like last time, I will be working on submitting to 30 magazines in a month. I have my pieces picked out and edited. I have a list of magazines that I want to submit to. And I have a cover letter and bio template ready to go.
Feel free to join me in this journey. I loved doing this in July and I am excited about all the magazines opening their doors to submissions this month. I would highly recommend that anyone who is wanting to grow and develop as a writer think about doing this in some form. Maybe you don’t want to do one magazine every day. Maybe you want to do one every other day, one a week, or even just one. Maybe you want to do three a week or three a day. Whatever the case may be, set a reasonable goal or yourself and get going. Your work isn’t going to read itself. If you do decide to join, please let me know. I would love to be able to support and encourage each other as the months go on. Good luck!
