Contests!

This has been a heavy week of posting for me–I’ll be away all of next week.  I’m bringing my story along, but my beach time is often the best time for me to get my story worked out in my head.

In the meantime, and in keeping with my desire to get published, I’m looking at the following contests.  I would really love to know any/all opinions on these literary magazines.  Please note: My annotations are purely my opinions.  Feel free to comment and let me know why you agree or disagree with me, or if you have any other suggestions.  The next time I post contests, I’ll post those that look interesting–and not simply for me.

What I like about this contest: It’s about family!  That’s my main subject!  I feel as though I might actually have a shot at this one.

What I like about this contest: OK–I like that it’s a journal for moms.  I’m a mom!  A lot of my work deals with my main character and her mother who left her when she was 11.  I think I can maybe find something to work with here.

What I like about this contest:  I like the magazine…and it’s one from which I’ve received my most encouraging rejections.

What I like about this contest: The editors actually offer feedback. This is so rare, I’m tempted to submit.

What I like about this contest: Oh, I just like this magazine.  I don’t have many hopes for them publishing me, but I like it.
