Simultaneous Submissions

Fat Charlatan wrote such a good post on simultaneous submissions and cover letters that I had to share.

FYI, I'm a firm believer in simultaneous submissions. I mean, the likelihood of two journals accepting my work is infinitesimally small.

Do you have any opinions on journals who ask if work has been previously published...does a blog count?

EMC, I go back and forth on this issue. I have submitted poems from my blog to print and Web publications. Most of the time, I'm honest about it.

A lot of Web journals take blog submissions. But for those that don't, if I publish a poem I've posted here, I will take down the original post and hope for the best.

I do believe honesty is the best policy, but that won't stop me from fudging the truth every now and then.
