This morning I've been organizing a new wave of submissions. I didn't keep up with this over the summer, so I've got quite a towering stack to send out. The organizing part is the hardest as I first check through the magazines to be sure they haven't changed their submission guidelines and then spend quite a bit of time matching up poems to journals. I really do try to heed the rule of reading back issues (or at least reading table of content lists) before sending in work.
Now, the poems are matched with the journals and I get to begin the labor-intensive act of actually sending the poems out into the world with both eagerness and anxiety.
