Super Bowl Sunday seemed like the perfect time to make my first submission of the year. I (Jenny) saw on Twitter that a magazine (also called Jenny) was accepting work through midnight. I could use Submittable to get mine in. And I had three poems I’d pulled out last week to review and consider.
So while the usually cheerful Cam Newton was taking a pounding on TV (poor guy), I was hitting the send button–not in the least worried about rejection. Expecting it. Don’t mind if I get it. But feeling great about submitting something.
So there. Maybe I sound more like a loser at the Academy Awards than the QB for the Panthers.
The magazine I sent my poems to uses Submittable, which does make it awfully easy to send your work out. (Too easy, some editors may think. I believe Caroline used it for the journal she published, so we’ll ask her about that.)
