Fledgling Approaches World

August 12, 2009

My writing student is ready to submit one of his short stories for print publication for the first time. He’s investigating that process, giving his story one final edit, and asking questions about simultaneous submissions. It’s exciting! He’s written about half a dozen stories since I started working with him, and this one shows all of his strengths. He’s come so far!

I made sure to warn him that the rejection rate is high for new writers when we first discussed submitting his work to magazines. But I can’t help myself from getting drawn into the excitement. I know I shouldn’t be so hopeful, but I am!

Good luck, kid!
