Surprisingly audacious reflections of a humble writer
ONE AND NOT DONE
I never used to be a Wildcat fan.
But over the last few years, I can't get enough of UK basketball. I think what attracted me to the game is our charismatic coach John Calipari.
That's the way I wish writing was like, having multiple chances to think about what went wrong (with a submission) and then go back and get it right. Usually a writer gets one chance and one chance only. Rarely do writers get a second chance to submit an edited version of their work to a publisher or an agent.
Kid's Imagination Train writers are not one and done's. Our writers submit again and again to KIT after their first acceptance. In fact, some writers have been with our little ezine for over five years.
I admit some writers publish once with us and move on to the pros (Highlights, Ranger Rick, Boys' Life). They exemplify UK's latest slogan: succeed-and-proceed which now replaces the three-word mantra. But most of our writers are loyal and recognize they get a privileged opportunity to work on their game.
