Have you ever tried to contribute a piece of writing for publication? We all know that there will be only two resutls. Either your article was accepted or it was rejected. Anyway, I guess it is a great deal. I have published few academic papers in some magazines-the link is www.sciencedirect.com, where they just payed attention to the experiments that we did. However, once comes to writing, my vague writing is far from qualifed to be considered as articles. There are good writers everywhere. People have dreams,yet I can't let my imagination run riot. It is just that I wondered how come they make it. If you could share it, I would appreciate it a lot. By the way, I like the style of the your writing. I am not talking about you not you. haha

I have never been brave enough to send any of my writing anywhere. I love writing stories and poems but have never had enough confidence in my writing to send it to magazines or publishers. I have self published a book of poems on one site but haven't really had the time or ability to promote it.

Just have a little more confidence. If it is free to contribute something, you don't have to be nervous. The editors don't bite, do they? Maybe pubilishing books is sort of time-consuming. Pubilishing poems, on the other hand, is so comfortable anyway. Come on! Baxia (Korean cheer up) Jiayou ( chinese cheer up) kang ba dei (Japanese cheer up) haha

I have had poetry published in more than one form of media. It is fun. I have also submitted a pattern for a craft but it was not accepted, so you never know. Two books had accepted my poetry but then wanted me to spend around $50. for buying me a copy of the book, so I just kept the letter ,never bought the book.

I think they should pay you something! They shouldn't ask money from you! That is absolutely not fair.

You don't have to pay anything if you do it. Come on! You can make it. Even if you fail to do so, just bear this in mind. Failure is the mother of success

I have not tried to get anything published since I was a child. One of the farm magazines to which my parents subscribed had a page for children. I did get a short story published there. I think they were just hard up for contributors.

Wow, that was great. In that way, you were a kid writer then somehow. On the other hand, if a Chinese magazine is really popular, it will be hard for contributors too. Sometimes, we tried to contribute some Chinese articles just for fun. Few people can live on it. haha I do have read some stories in American magazines. However, I don't think the writing skills of the authors there are definately that better than you guys. It is just that they have good lucks and good chances. Oh, well, I don't mean that they are not gifted either. Take care.

Oh, it is very kind of you! Anyway, I guess some of you have already been qualifed as a writer. You just don't have the time or the mood. Take care.

You can write something in your native tongue and contribute it to your native magazine. That's awesome too.

Since i`m a little girl,i`ve punished a poet in local newspaper,i just remembered it was called"rainbow" or sth,like a modern poet i think.Yes,i love writing,no matter chinese or english,surely the english article is harder to me in some certain.Well,it`s a amazing thing when you find your words on the paper,feel very fully and comfortable.and that would encourage you to write more. After all,writing is a funny thing i think.
