looking through some magazines about poetry submissions. biggest mistake- sending them stuff they dont normally publish. hence, you have to send them work that is tailored to their taste.
convo w. a friend “i did some work today that my professors would piss on but i really like”… past convo w. a feature coming to acentos “so what does your crowd like?’… convo over slam strategy “if the venue like funny, give em funny, its a slam- ya know”… convo concerning a modified lesson plan “the original syllabus was formatted to children of a higher reading grade; the new poems are more geared to their present literacy levels”… convo regarding slam “never pander”… convo about getting published “dont worry about what the editor thinks of your work- unless he says ‘no'”… convo regarding performance poetry “i am not out here to entertain, i am here to read my work”… convo regarding the slam “you cant worry about what five random strangers think”… convo regarding a rejection letter “never take it personal”… convo regarding the slam “kill the judges!!!”… convo regarding a rejection letter “what does the editor know?”
