Please say hello to the newly birthed 4th Collection 🙂 I hope you enjoy — Christina Lydia Cover Image: Bill Wolak “The Wound Reaching Through Time” (front cover) & “Fear of Weightlessness” (back cover)
Everything I write, draw, or create is an experience I have had. It’s how I process what has happened, who was present, and what it means to me or the people around me. It’s how I work to understand the world and how I fit into it.
“Read the publication; read the guidelines; let your work rest a few weeks before you send it out, then review it, edit, and proof, proof, proof. Keep track of your submissions (where, when, response, etc.); expect rejection and celebrate acceptance; don’t invest too much in your submissions: the next poem you write will be better and you’ll wish you’d waited instead of sending out that other one. If a piece of writing is rejected a number of times, revisit it to see whether it needs editing; it’s possible you just haven’t found the right publication yet.”
“Honestly, I think a lot of first time published authors are under appreciated. I feel like people have tendency to look for the big names in literary magazines and forget to stop and read some newer authors’ work. The big names are big for a reason but the newbies deserve the recognition too.”
