Knifing through Rejections

The single reaction any writer with ambition to be published must confront is rejection. It's an odd thing, this We're afraid your fine essay doesn't suit us presently, but we wish you success in placing it elsewhere response a writer gets more often than not.

That's why it's exceptionally sweet for an essay you believe has promise, has something to say to audience, eventually reaches publication.

Turn to the new, and growing-in-prestige, publication Blue Lyra Review for my essay "Knife."

I remember this essay from IWW. I liked it then, and I still like it. Nicely done, and congratulations on the publication.
