I am. In a bit. Let me write something worth it. *scuttles away*

I'd be down to join a submissions bootcamp if someone else wanted to run the thing.

I'd also, seriously, be down. It's about time I start trying to actually get something published, and sending out one novel manuscript a year isn't gonna cut it. If we did it as a group I think I'd enjoy that more than doing it on my own, and not having anyone to vent to when I got rejected.

ETA: It goes without saying that these magazines are pretty legit. But checking some out I can already see quite a few that charge $2 or $3 for submissions. That might not seem like a big deal, but these are big magazines that should be making their money from the subscribers, not the writers. That's something I'd be wary about, and if we do a mass group submission, I'd probably disregard ones that did that.

Yeah, I really think that a submission 'group' would be nice, especially for motivation and others to get to read over works for that one final polish. However, Isis, I don't know who would really be qualified enough to take leadership.

We would also need a few more people who thought themselves at that stage for the group to work, I think. With regards to myself I definitely need to write a few stories (5 or 6) before I think of submitting them. It's nice to have a bank of things that I can just send out, I feel.

I'm up for it. Better than sitting around writing poetry that isn't going anywhere and it's a nice way to spend an evening. What's NOT to like? Apart from the work.

I have a large list of work that could do with a bit of editing, nothing a weekend couldn't sort out.

I'd join. I don't have much polished stuff, but I want to work some up, play around-- I'm suddenly a lot more free to edit & wreck old poems.

I haven't written anything submission worthy in like 2 months, and I'm not sure I'll have the time, but I'd like to be updated on the happenings of this group if it gets going.

I hate it when they don't accept simultaneous submissions and don't respond unless it's good news. I mean, it slows down the process enough when you can only submit one at a time, but you usually have to wait months before you can determine that non-responders aren't interested--that means you'd end up submitting to only four places a year.

I submitted to The New Yorker, and a few of the others. I highly doubt I'll hear anything from them, but aim big, right?

Instantly disregarding any list that puts Narrative Magazine as #1. Word Riot, Thrush, PANK, Devil's Lake, etc. are all magazines that should be on any best-of-the-web list.
