In the middle of last year I submitted a prose-poem to MoonPark Review. It was rejected. After picking myself up and dusting off my bruised ego, I noted that my rejection included an offer to submit again in future. So I logged that away and knew that when I had a better piece of short prose I would submit.
Then, late last year I wrote a story/poem/monologue called Mercury. I took it to a workshop where it was torn apart by the facilitator. After once again picking myself up and dusting off my bruised ego, I used the critique I got to almost completely rewrite it.
I submitted the new and improved Mercury.
It was accepted for their summer issue.
I highly recommend going back through prior issues too. There’s some good stuff there.
Thank you Mary Lynn and Lesley for giving me the encouragement I needed to submit a second time and for publishing this piece.
