my 26th Readers Letter published

Susan K - August 16, 2017 writes:

my 26th Readers Letter published, well about that anyway. Losing Count...sometimes it has been a Rave or even a tip. Sent my first poem in once as a Readers Letter, and it got published, I was so surprised because I thought it was awful but it was a funny incident poem.

Congrats, Susan. Your successes serve as an inspiration to those of us who are very new here. I'm just wondering if you could share a couple of links to your work to assist me in mastering the art. Thanks you.

Give me your email address Niyl and I will type some out. I send them generally to 2 main magazines that I know are good with payments and gifts but I have also done others too and got gifts and cheques from. There is one I had a problem with so I generally omit them. There are Readers letters, Tips on ideas. I have even written poems and they added them to their Readers letters. Basically you need to read some of their magazines and know what sort of thing they are looking for, then do that. A photo always helps ALWAYS generally. So sentd a good one. When I started sending a poem it was a mishap in my life that I turned around into a Poem. I read it a little later and thought how bad the poem was and to my surprise - they printed it, and sent me a prize!! So never discard any idea you have, as long as it goes with their ideas and themes. Really not hard - we limit ourselves sometimes by our own thinking that we are not god enough! We just have to go for it and think we are good enough. Hope that helps!

Hello Susan, I just posted my first achievement on the platform (under Successes) but thought I should return here to give you a special appreciation. Thanks for your last mail which I found to be very helpful I have just received a mail from the Editor of Spirit & Destiny magazine commending the Reader's Letter I submitted on their November 2017 edition of the magazine. I have also been informed that I have won a "Fortifying Green Bath potion worth £27.50". I'm so happy and grateful to you for your guidance. Guess more will still come with determination. Warm regards.

Wow, very well done, many congratulations. apart from the prize the biggest thing is knowing how many people will read it after having gone to all the Newsagents in the Country. So happy for you, and thank you for letting me know.
