Being Your Own Agent


If you’re what literary journals consider an “emerging writer” then chances are you’re also your own agent. You have to be on the prowl for publication opportunities. You scan dozens of web pages, looking for submission calls (and clicking away when there’s a submission fee).

You read archives dated back to 2005, asking yourself if you fit the publication’s “tone”.

You wait months for a reply.

You get rejected.

You wonder why you try.

And isn’t that what it comes down to? Do you still believe in you?

You don’t. You do.

It doesn’t matter.

You write.

And as long as you write, there’s something to submit.

And as long as you submit, there’s a chance for publication.
