I’ve been lurking /lit/ for years and I keep reading all these threads with publishing horror stories, and how it’s impossible to get published if you aren’t a trans-latinX-trans-womyn or some shit like that, and I believed it.
I can’t believe I did. You guys are fucking stupid. A creative writing professor encouraged me to submit a very literary story I wrote for her class to some magazines and I literally have 3 acceptances within 2 weeks, two of them are at publications you’ve all heard of. I can’t believe you self-defeating, pathetic losers actually think it’s cause of some conspiracy/decline of culture/anti-intellectualism/whatever the fuck that your work isn’t published. You’re all talentless losers.
I didn’t go through an agent, I’m not a “underprivileged minority,” and literally the only thing I had going for me is my last name (which they didn’t even look at; I had my dad check with his contacts and they confirmed that my submission was accepted without knowing my family background) and I got in on raw talent. You guys are fucking pathetic. Time to leave this board.
