2023 in rejections (and acceptances)

My submission pace picked up a little in 2023 but acceptances have remained low.

Acceptance and personal rejection rate are down even more than last year so apparently, I just suck.

Poetry had a bigger uptick in submissions this year with a lot more acceptances. In fact, I had a long streak of poetry acceptances before I finally managed to get a single story published. As I’ve said on multiple occasions, apparently I’m a poet now?
