Good to hear from you, David--and many thanks for that excellent list! Two years is about one year and eleven months too long to respond to any piece of writing, but I would have pretty much shrugged it off had the editors just had enough character to sign their names. - Steve LewisonDear Literary Editor—and Writeron 3/23/17 @ 7:43
Yup. That's a killer Steve. Although, it's more insane to send you that card than to just remain a zero in your endeavors.
I was thinking about all of this when I found the following earlier this week: "Fifteen Literary Journals that Respond within a Month" http://www.authorspublish.com/fifteen-literary-journals-that-respond-within-a-month/
Some ask for exclusives, some don't. But at least these 15 get it...at least on paper.

Just a follow up ... five months later: Today I received a rejection from the Vestal Review regarding a microfiction piece (268 words) that I submitted two years and one month ago. The note (not signed by a human being): "Though your manuscript does not suit our current needs, we wish you the best of luck placing it elsewhere. Sorry for holding it so long." That's what I'm talking about.

I've been thinking a lot about resonance of late. Without realizing it, resonance also applies doubly for me in this piece. For one thing, I read a memoir because I want to feel some resonance with the author's experiences. Even if I can't think that I would ever do what that person has done, I'd still like to feel our common "human-ness." - jacobshomeonDon’t Take Away My David Bowieon 3/13/17 @ 2:16
I'm reading your wonderful book, "Rilke's Book of Hours" and am thoroughly enjoying it. In 1995 I released a CD that had six of my vocal setting of Rilk'es poems from Robert Bly's translations from the Book of Hours. The "New York Voices" recorded the pieces and Meryl Streep narrated. I'd love to send you and Joanna Macy these CDs. Would you kindly send me both of your mailing addresses? I'm a retired minister and served parishes in both the United Methodist Church and the Congregational Church. These days I make my living as a jazz pianist. If you would like to chat, please call me at 516-242-4338. Thank you, Robert Lepley - Robert LepleyonAnita Barrows: Poemon 3/3/17 @ 3:05
Let's not mix up facts. I have four wonderful, talented , smart , good children and that cat is not one of them. Napolian was also a great writer, standardized the French language confusion, organized the government and changed his world. Never underestimate the short ones, they rise to high places . My pride soars for you . - Mark buchananonChild of Noon and Midnighton 2/23/17 @ 10:23
