Veteran editor and award-winning writer, F. J. Bergmann sat down with me to deliver unexpected insights on submitting.
Here are a couple take-aways:
-Your gender may be correlated with how much you submit.
-The line between submitting enough and SPAM.
-The truth about the value of your work.
Great times were had by all. Expect more from this session in future posts in which F. J. spills the beans on writing prolifically, how she knows when she should quit on a poem (it’s not when you think) and how to get some of your best work.
