Let's get down to posting
or do you want to face it
when the pages
You know you don't really wanna see
that we've got nothing to read,
give us all
of the art
"I realized I still have four days
and that really ain't much time!
Will I finish drawing that portrait of mine?
Do you really think the LitMag needs my work?
Of course, if you really cared
you wouldn't give me such a scare~
I'll pull my hair!!
If it would
get you to submit to Calliope.
If it would
I'd buy you a copy of the magazine.
That's a joke,
you know if you submit by 2-15-13
I don't pay
you will get
your own copy!!! (FREE).
So now that we've given you your dose of Procrasilliness for the day, folks--in all honesty--we here at the Calliope Literary Magazine really do want your submissions. We want to read your poems, admire your photographs, see what you all are up to with your art: nothing would make us happier to see that the pages of this year's magazine are filled with all of your wonderful submissions.
Think about it. If you're into outlines, Readers, we'll even give you a bulletpoint list.
REASONS TO SUBMIT
- The magazine is your time to shine. Just submit, and the opportunity to showcase your work is yours.
- Sure, yearbooks are one way to remember your years at Amity. But, as for Calliope LitMag, it's arguably an even better way to capture the times. By submitting your work, you give yourself the opportunity to capture a part of YOU in the magazine.
- You'll have a down-in-print example of what kind of art you produced in 2012-2013 if you submit by the 15th.
- Other people who purchase or get their own free copies of the magazine will see and remember your work. It's a form of literary immortality.
- Lots of someones will see your work, and perhaps they'll be inspired by what you create. You'll never know the power of your work on others if you don't put it out there for them to see.
- If we've already written up this blogpost for you in hopes that you submit to us by the 15th, don't you think it'd be kind of cruel to just leave us editors hanging? Complete the high-five. Come on. You know you want to.
- (And if a large number of folks do submit by the end of the month, perhaps we'll make more Disney parodies. That's a definite maybe.)
So now, we leave you all with the Overwhelming Question:
Will you submit?
We really hope you make the right choice.
It's up to you all to hit the submit button now.
Either you'll do it or you won't.
There are only two options.
