A New Blog: Six Questions For . . .

I won't be updating this blog daily as I have been, but will post multiple times per week. Here's why.

Announcing Six Questions For . . ., a new project to enlighten writers.

In response to a post on this blog about rejection, a reader suggested I publish a series of interviews in which editors "list, in excruciating details, all that each editor desires in his/her stories." Wow. What a great idea. Not only does this provide authors with specific information about what editors are looking for in the submissions they receive, it offers editors a venue for advertising their publications and getting the word out about what, in their opinion, constitutes "good writing."

To support this effort, I created the Six Questions For . . . blog. You can learn more about this project by reading the Welcome message, and mark your calendar to return on December 1st when Six Questions For Nathaniel Tower, Founder and Editor, Bartleby Snopes goes live! A new set of responses will be posted every Monday and Thursday (except 12/3, 12/24, and 12/31).

A sampling of other participants includes: Anderbo, Apollo’s Lyre, Black Velvet Seductions (publisher of romance novels), Boston Literary Magazine, Camroc Press Review, dcomP, Dew on the Kudzu, Flash Me Magazine, Grey Sparrow Journal, and Toasted Cheese.

If you're involved with a magazine, publisher, or literary agency and would like to participate; or if you have a question or would like to suggest a publication, publisher, or agent for me to include, please contact me at

Please consider sharing this news with your writing friends. I’ve learned a lot from reading the responses received so far. I’m certain other writers will too.
