Episode 735: That's Half Of October Scheduled...
Have begun sending off acceptances and rejections. Well, so far there haven't been outright rejections of entire submissions, but there's definitely one coming up. I've also learnt that it's not a good idea to read submissions on my iPhone, as opening documents in it doesn't always preserve the formatting. Have been meaning to e-mail a contributor with a suggestion regarding stanzas, only to discover upon opening the document on my laptop that the stanza breaks were exactly where I was going to suggest them; the iPhone software just didn't register them. Silly, right? Spent a good hour trying to figure out how to get some of the more eccentric identations in one of the poems I'm publishing to show up in WordPress, and finally settled for inserting blank spaces in HTML using ' ' instead. Have managed to schedule posts for the first half of October, so that's a decent buffer in place. Will tweet once the pieces start running! The idea is to build up a certain number of posts, then apply to get listed on Duotrope's Digest, which should hopefully bring more exposure for the journal. Who knows, I might (finally) even post about it on Facebook.
