The Losing Game: Writing Acceptance 8/? 2020
To quote The Decemberists, a band of great prominence during my undergraduate experience, "July, july, july never seemed so strange." I also just notice that though the band is named the Decemberists, they wrote about July. You'd think they'd have special interest in December. But I guess in terms of music that means Christmas Carols, which, you know, a hearty no thank you. Anyway this is the kind of shit I think about and write about and sometimes people publish it, for which I'm deeply grateful. In this case, that someone is a journal I love, QWERTY!
This little West Coast dweller is thrilled to have writing appear on the East Coast. I'm really excited for the issue, not only do I love the journal, I'm a big fan of the guest editors. The whole thing is such a joy.
Here's the acceptance. I hope you're finding pockets of joy during these awful times.
