Submissions and Successes!


I know via Facebook and Twitter that many contributors have had publication successes over this past year. So let's get a good list going in the comments. This will be a good way for us to not only share our successes, but for others to get some ideas, inspiration, and places to submit.

Also, C.D. Smith, the editor of Fire Point: A Journal of MFA Prose and Poetry wants everyone to check them out. Submit!

Raina tweeted that the deadline for Best New Poets is approaching on 5/20. The reading fee is only $3.50 per two poems. You can't beat that for possible publication in a book.

I'll be doing my first year wrap-up soon! And fixing up the contributor's list. I don't have an update on my progress on world peace.

Post your pubs in the comments!

  5. Congrats on the successes already posted and those to be posted later!

    I got very lucky this school year and managed to place 10 poems. Some of them found homes online and some in print. Some were in more established places, and some were in upstarts. I'm an equal opportunity submitter!

    Print: Copper Nickel (2 poems), Poet Lore, Sakura Review, Old Red Kimono

    Online: Linebreak, Scythe (3 poems), The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature

    I look forward to reading about and reveling in everyone's successes!

  9. Wow, everyone-- there's so much to be proud of. I'm pretty jazzed about this year-- I placed a poem in the inaugural issue of "Big Lucks" and two stories, one in "The Meadowland Review," and one in "Broad River Review."

    My big publication 'success' though is that I've continued writing for my college town paper, the Evansville Courier & Press-- it's afforded me some really cool opportunities, and even led to a couple kind of cool blog opportunities, including last week when I got to interview Art Alexakis of Everclear.

  10. Throughout the school year (Fall 2009 to Present) I've had poems named first and third runner-up in the 2009 International Reginald Shepherd Memorial Poetry Prize, selected by Carl Phillips. I've had or will have poems appearing in Knockout Literary Magazine, Indiana Review, Nashville Review, Ganymede, The Collagist. Been a good year.

  11. I have a poem being published in the lit magazine at Texas A&M University - Corpus Christi (my alma mater) entitled "The Heart of Things". I rarely write poetry, so the notification was a pleasant surprise.

  12. I have two poems coming out, one in the Potomac Review and one in The Los Angeles Review, both in print and both due in the fall. I'm very excited! Congrats to everyone else getting published!

  13. I had a bit of success in my first MFA year, landing two stories in publications, one in Storyglossia and one in Staccato. Placed one poem in Anthills and had a story accepted for presentation this fall at MMLA in Chicago.

    Not too bad. I'll take it.

  18. Also, in the past year I have had a lot of good fortune getting published. A few magazines that I've had work in fairly recently(or have work forthcoming in)that might be worth submitting to are: Rattle, Thieves Jargon, Night Train, Union Station, and Decomp.
