A guest post by Yi Shun Lai

Since 2014 I have edited prose for the Tahoma Literary Review. This submission period we had a little over a thousand submissions; by the time I’m done, I will have read somewhere between 350 and 400 pieces of fiction and given feedback on a little over half of those. (We have awesome fiction readers at TLR to help with the remainder of the workload, and poetry makes up a massive chunk of those thousand submissions.)

It Is Okay to Change Paths

A guest post by Tess Gerritsen

This piece is extracted from Signature’s 2017 Ultimate Writing Guide

Long before I became a doctor, I was a writer. At the age of seven I wrote my first suspense novel, about a blue zebra named Mickey who was warned never to go into the jungle. Naturally, Mickey went into the jungle. I bound the pages together with needle and thread and proudly announced to my father that I had found my future career. I was going to write books!

My father said that was no way to make a living. And that’s how I ended up in medical school instead.

Rejection Is Not Feedback

A guest post by Allison K Williams

I need a sweater. So I go to the mall. (The mall is a temple of consumerism with an indoor ski slope overlooked by The Cheesecake Factory, because I live in Dubai.)

The first store specializes in argyle sweaters. Argyle is just not my thing. Do I:

A) Assume this brand is garbage and everything they will ever make is argyle.

B) Say “no thank you,” and head for another store, dismissing argyle from my mind because it’s not that big a deal, I’m shopping all day anyway and hey, someone else is going to love diamond plaids.

How do I pitch to a publication

A guest post by Karen Andrews

Like many who work in the creative fields, I’ve worn many hats over my career: writer, blogger, editor, arts worker, publisher, teacher, mentor . . . the list goes on. I’ve navigated the digital space and the opportunities it provides while also working with (sometimes for) more traditional publications. I’ve talked with countless people about getting started with their writing, and one of the biggest issues I’ve encountered is that many writers either avoid or stop submitting their work due to fear of rejection. This is understandable.
