Robert Brooks has an interesting bit of news

Dear Writers:

Here is a bit of news that came as a surprise: a short story was rejected by Kzine and I was working to convert to first person.  I checked another on-line site where it had been submitted and got some good news.

Quantum Muse, an on-line journal that requires three positive reviews by fellow authors before publication, indicated I had two reviews.  I figured I was just unlucky in that no third reviewer was interested enough to read.  Then I noticed that I had a message.  The message was that "Crystal Bears" would be published in the April edition of Quantum Muse.  I went to that issue and behold it was there:

Crystal Bears by R.R. Brooks.  Quantum Muse April 2018  (Click on the link or put http://www.quantummuse.com/story.php?RecID=864 in your browser.  This is a fantasy piece that explores how doubt can lead to belief.

Too bad I completed the first-person version because I realize now that the published version could have been polished.  At any rate, the moral is that you should check your messages.

Teach. Write. A Blog by Katie Winkler, is open for submissions

A few weeks ago, a writer and blogger named Jim Harrington interviewed Katie Winkler for his fiction writing blog, "Six Questions for...". about her literary magazine, Teach. Write. Here is the link:    http://sixquestionsfor.blogspot.com/2017/12/six-questions-for-katie-winkler-editor.html

Teach. Write. is once again open for submission. Katie says:

"Writing for publication can lead to the best professional development a writing teacher can experience because it gives teachers a chance to remember the struggles and successes of the writing process. Teach. Write. seeks to showcase the creative writing of teachers to bring them back to the fundamentals of the writing process and closer to their students."

If you have ever taught English composition at any level, please consider submitting to Teach. Write. Submissions are now open through March 1 for the spring 2018 edition. Submission guidelines can be found at https://heymrswinkler.com/teach-write/teach-write-submission-guidelines/

Glenda C. Beall Interviews Robert S. King, Poet, Editor and former Director of FutureCycle Press

GCB: I met you in Dahlonega, GA a few years ago, Robert, when you had just taken over as President of the Georgia Poetry Society. Then you came to Writers Night Out in Hiawassee, GA.  We were happy to find you had moved to the mountains and lived in NCWN West territory.

GCB: You were director of FutureCycle Press at that time.

Robert: FutureCycle Press began in 2007. However, I have also been editor or co-editor of several other presses, dating back to the mid-1970s.

GCB; How many books have been published by FutureCycle Press?

Robert: So far, 50 titles (books, chapbooks, anthologies), with 10 more in production

GCB: When did you begin publishing your poetry? Tell me again, how many of your own books have been published?

Robert: The first poem I published was in 1974, unless you count a short one printed in the church bulletin when I could barely write my name.
I have published six collections of poetry (three chapbooks and three full-length titles), with another full-length manuscript ready to seek a publisher.

Online Submissions Systems and Market Lists for Writers

GCB: On April 20, you will teach a workshop on the Nuts and Bolts Guide to Online Submission Systems and Market Lists for Writers 
Why is it important for writers to learn how to submit online and what will they learn in your class that they can't pick up on the Internet?

Robert:  Online submission is now the standard, no longer an exception to the rule. More and more publications are not only allowing electronic submissions but also requiring it.
Snail-mail submissions will be obsolete before too many years pass.

My class will not teach you anything that you couldn't learn on your own, but it will prevent you from having to go through the School of Hard Knocks, wasting your time.
It takes quite awhile to discover all the resources for submissions and no small amount of time learning how to use them. My class will jump-start your proficiency at selecting suitable publishers and sending according to their guidelines.

GCB: Is this class for experienced writers and poets or for beginners?

Robert: It's for any level of writer. Even many advanced writers don't know the resources available. However, beginning to intermediate writers will benefit most.

GCB: People know you as a poet. Is the class at Moss Memorial Library for poets only or for any writer?

Robert: The class is geared toward literary genres, including poetry, fiction, and essays. However, the resources discussed are comprehensive and suitable for any kind of writing, except perhaps cookbooks.

GCB: Thank you, Robert. You are always generous about giving of your time to help other writers. We all appreciate you.
