My First Rejection

A personal milestone for me– my very first rejection, an email from The Missouri Review. They said they liked my story and asked me to submit again so this is about the best result I could have hoped for short of acceptance.

Benjamin Percy gave me some great advice at the Seaside Residency– submit to the top mags and send the story to five more markets for every rejection I get. After logging this rejection, I immediately sent out three electronic submissions and will mail two paper copies (snail-mail? geez) tomorrow.  It’s a positive approach and I’d encourage others to try it.
