An iron arm, of Italian workmanship I decided to write about some numbers about receiving rejections after I saw this tweet: Writers don't share every rejection, only the acceptances, so I expect most of us probably have very skewed ideas about each other's levels of success. — Jonathan Louis Duckworth (@Joduckwo) April 6, 2022 I don’t have any problem showing how many rejections I get for the poems I’m submitting to journals, drawing on statistics I have available through Duotrope.
