Hi there Can't Post

Hello all. I've been receiving the PW newsletter for a while and figured I would register for the forums. As an editor for a literary magazine, I'm more here for questions on the industry and the craft in general rather than specifics on my own writing (which needs a lot of work, don't get me wrong). You could call it networking if you wanted to sound professional. I like to call it nibbling, just because nibble is a cute word.

I've only ever published one poem, and it was in a magazine that nobody has heard of, but I'm still working on it. I'm sort of taking a break over the summer just to breathe and plan on returning to writing back in the fall. I have a novel that's sitting alone in a dark corner toward the back of my head, maybe behind my ear. For the summer I'd like to focus more on "business" ventures and getting my 'zine out there. That's not to say I'm going to blatantly advertise. I'm willing to swap links with anyone--it's all about mutual backscratching. I'm just here to learn and get to know other writers, really.

Anyway. Cheers. Good to meet vous*.

*It still irritates me that there is no equivalent of "you plural" in the English language, other than "y'all" or "yous guys" which just don't fit here.

You'd be surprised what magazines we've heard of. And been published in.

And you forgot "yunz," the second-person plural from western Pennsylvania.

But welcome to the party.

Hey, Patrick. Go ahead, say "y'all." I don't mind.

Thanks for the welcome, everyone. Still adjusting to the layout here. It's definitely different from other forums I have been to.

And who knows, I may just bust out "y'all" after all.

Re: [PatrickNathan] Hi there [In reply to] Can't Post

welcome and good luck. I am not a very frequent poster; I browse and find something of interest or something I can respond to easily, so if you do not see my responses to your questions it is not that I lack interest. There are a few here who "pee on every hydrant", and I mean that in a nice way, and many others who will contact you privately and you will find a lot of valuable insight in those private messages or direct emails; some folks just want to speak their minds without getting shouted down. Good luck on the novel.
