30 Queries in 30 Days: #7 and #8

September 8, 2013 at 12:09 pm , by Alyce Wilson

Today is my birthday, so I’m going easy on myself. I meant to do two queries yesterday for my 30 Queries in 30 Days project, but between a hair appointment and spending some quality time having a “Sesame Street” dance party with my 3-year-old boy, I didn’t get the chance.

So here goes:

7) E-mailed a request for Writer Guidelines to the editor of “Parents Express,” a Philadelphia-area parenting newspaper.

Then I put together a poetry magazine for West Branch, the literary semiannual of Bucknell University, down the road from where I grew up. Going through my poetry submission file, I saw that they’d written a note on a rejected submission years and years ago, but I’d never sent them another!

8 ) Submitted six poems to West Branch.

And now an update:

I got an e-mail earlier today, regarding #6, my proposal submission via Elance to write a press release for a new business book. The client rejected my proposal, giving the reason “preferred another style.” Well, I guess there’s nothing I can do about that! It would have been nice for them to tell me what sort of style they preferred. Perhaps, if possible, I’ll follow up and ask them.
