I recently spent some time submitting poems in the hopes that 2018 might bring a few more acceptances my way. (2017 was a little quiet, in that respect.) While researching various publications, it occurred to me that there’s a pretty standard code for naming a lit journal. Just take an emotion or a color, add a bird or a plant, tack on a publication type, and… voilà! You’re ready for submissions.
Let’s try it, shall we?
Create your own literary journal using the chart below:
My literary journal would be called… Morose Penguin Review.
I have to admit, that’s pretty awesome. 🙂
What’s yours? Share the name of your new lit journal in the comments.

Furious Dove Review! Has a certain ring to it. Maybe I should put it on the to-do list for 2018!
Nice! I think you should! 🙂
Morose Grass Press. Pretty befitting of me, I think. 😀 Although, Mad Hummingbird Review immediately caught my eye–that would be a killer lit journal name.
