Dead Submissions

So you’ve got this great poem. You’ve labored on it for a long time and you get it just right and decide you want to get it published. Good. Great even. So you submit it to a magazine. And they reject you. Not so great. But why? Why??

Well, it’s possible they don’t know what good poetry is. It’s also possible it’s just not their genre of poem. I mean, you would think people would publish good stuff, right? Well, everyone’s taste is different. Just accept it, and go publish it somewhere else. 🙂

There’s an easy answer to everything.
