...is the last day.
After tomorrow, you can no longer submit your work for publication in Mavguard Edition IV.
Maybe you’re thinking you’ll just catch the next edition, that right now it’s too scary and it’ll be easier next time. But if you’re saying that now, then I know you’ll say it again when the next window opens up. You’ll look at Mavguard’s website and you’ll look at your work, and you’ll decide to submit next time. Again. Trouble is, you can’t always wait until next time.
Sooner or later, you need to get out of the boat and walk on water.
If you don’t try, you’ll never succeed.
You’ve made this masterpiece, this beautiful craft that makes you beam with joy every time you look at it. But then, why haven’t you done anything with it? Why not send it in for publication, why not let other people see it and admire it?
But maybe you don't beam at it. Maybe you think it's only okay. But how will you get any advice on how to make it better, if you don't send it somewhere?
We’re not a pretend magazine. We’re not a gimmick. We’re a publisher, a magazine, and we want to publish you.
Our primary goal is publication. Of course it is. We’re not looking at your name to see if you’ve been published before, or how well those publications did for you. We’re looking at your work, at the quality of what you’ve created. That’s all we need to know: is your work beautiful. And really, everything is beautiful to someone, isn’t it?
We don’t want to scare you. We don’t want to stress you out.
We only want to publish you.
Won’t you let us?
Go to www.MavguardMagazine.com and submit something. You’re allowed to submit up to five pieces in each category. That means if you’re a short story author, poet, and artist, you can submit up to fifteen pieces, total. That gives you pretty good chances, wouldn’t you say?
So go online and send something in.
Don’t overthink it. Don’t freak out.
Just fill out the form online, attach a copy of your work, and send it in.
That’s all there is to it.
We start reading on July 1, so you won’t even have long to wait. If you ask me, now’s the best time to be sending in your work.
I want to see you succeed.
