The latest message in my Submittable queue brought that Men In Black quote to mind. A Dear Jane letter from the literary organization, Fear No Lit; my application for their Submerging Writer Mentorship had been rejected.
I knew that the odds weren’t in my favor. As they said in their message, “[n]arrowing down 670 applications to 10 semi-finalists was a very difficult task.” But still, it stings so bad to see a chance for “chapbook publication, prize money, and more” slip through one’s fingers.
Time to focus on happier news. Tonight’s poem is #166 since April 1 this year. And my latest Writers Den interview – with author Jamie Ford no less – is live.
Think: you are the sun
light hungry they tendril
close enough to bask
