Yet again, no joy from Southword. I sent in five of my best poems but no potatoes.
I know the response is probably a template and I don't fault Southword for that - it is an excellent magazine and they get thousands of poems. But you're supposed to send in your multiple submissions as a single word.doc. And the response above says "it" and "the piece" rather than "them" and "the pieces." Of course, the editor couldn't possibly have taken them as five parts of the one poem, surely?
Nah, I'm just a crap poet, might as well face up to it and stop clutching at straws.
