A further brief note on the threat of rejection

Another thing that is making me hesitant to submit any poetry once the book I’m currently working on is complete is the fact that I really want to be published by Faber. This comes down in part to the same thing that drove Queen to strive from the go to end up on EMI. They wanted EMI because The Beatles were on their label, and I want Faber because my favourite poets were and are published by them. I just doubt it will happen.

If anyone from Faber happens to be reading this (which I also doubt) then- PLEASE PUBLISH ME! (Just as soon as I’ve finished the book). Well; we can all dream.

    (This is Helen from Oxford!) I’m the same right now with sci-fi short stories: I really want to submit to some of the A list magazines like Asimov’s and Clarkesworld, but the vast probability is that I’ll get turned down and I’ll have had stories I could use elsewhere tied up in their long submissions proceedure. I think it’s probably still worth aiming for top though, otherwise you’ll be wondering if it would have worked out. I think I like Faber and Faber 50% because they published TS Elliot, and 50% because because their logo tiles really nicely.:-)

    • I’m about 75% certain that I will try and submit some poems to publisers once this book is complete- it’s just being able to psych myself up enough to do it! And yes- the whole look of Faber is just great, and they’ve had some fantastic designs over the years- the tiles on their poetry from the 80s and 90s are a personal favourite too.
