#100rejections — February Totals

Accountability check-in! But first, a recap from my first #100rejections post:

I have decided to set the literary goal of accumulating 100 rejections this calendar year to facilitate sustained efforts toward publication. Submitting multiple poems to one market and having them all rejected counts as one rejection. Having any number of poems in the packet accepted means that submission counts as an acceptance. I’m aiming for 120 submissions by September 30 to accomplish this

February, 2017 — 7 Rejections, 2 Acceptances, 8 New Submissions
Year to Date, 20 / 4 /30

  • Hermeneutic Chaos Press, Rejection*
  • Animal: A Beast of a Literary Journal, Rejection
  • West Branch, Rejection*
  • Memoryhouse Magazine, Acceptance
  • Rust+Moth, Rejection
  • 32 Poems, Rejection*
  • FIELD, Rejection*
  • FLARE, Rejection
  • Uppagus, Acceptance

*The journals marked with an asterisk (*) satisfy my secondary literary goal of submitting to as many top-tier journals as possible. See my January Totals post for details.

Tune next month for March tallies!
