What this Writer is up to

There’s not a lot of new content appearing here at my writing blog right now. It’s not because I’m not writing anything. Far from it! Right now, I am working on submitting my work to various audiences and markets. I have two pieces that I plan to submit to Chicken Soup for the Soul. I will be submitting a very short(100 word) love letter to a contest. Also, my local NPR station has called for submissions from female essayists. It’s not a paying market, but I plan to submit to it for the recognition.

I am most excited about submitting to my favorite magazine (The Sun! Read it if you never have–it’s excellent!). The magazine has a section where they publish reader essays on selected topics. Again, not a paying market, but it is one of my dreams/goals to be published in The Sun. My plan is to start small and then work up to an essay, a piece of short fiction, or a poem.

Stay tuned for updates about the results of my submissions. It’s really an exciting time for me as a writer. Of course, I say that now while I am in the upbeat submitting part and not after rejections!

  1. I literally printed out the submission rules for the Sun this morning! Maybe our bylines will be in consecutive order in an issue one of these days. Would that be a lark? Love it!

    And best of luck with all your writing. You inspire me to stretch.
