A personal essay I wrote this spring just got accepted by the Colorado Review today for their spring 2014 issue. Four hours after I got that acceptance, and agreed to it, (before I even had time to withdraw it from other journals) I got an email from another amazing journal also accepting it. Two acceptances for the same piece in the same day. That is a new one for me, and I’m still floored.
This is my first full essay acceptance, and that it was from the Colorado Review is a dream come true.
