I came across this blog post this morning with some tips for beginning poets and how to not jump in the art. I personally like tip number six:
“When a magazine rejects your submission, screw it. And screw the editor, too. They’re out to get you, jealous freaks. Send them a piece of your mind, find other magazines, and submit to them only. Magazine editors are, after all, failed writers. They don’t want to see anyone succeed where they didn’t. Watch out for them.”
A pretty humorous look at how to “make it” in the poetry business.
