so you want to write, huh?

I just submitted  prose poetry to Tin House, and I was wondering how much writers are compensated get when their work is accepted. So, I google the term, Tin House submissions, and I found this awesome website entitled, Blue Mosaic Me: The Literary Blog of Jackson Bliss. I really enjoyed this website because the author, who is a PhD Literature and Creative Writing student at the University of Southern California, discusses the writing process. He mentions conversations with his professors at USC: Aimee Bender, Percival Everett, and T.C. Boyle. He includes the various rejections letters that he has received from literary magazines, email correspondence from New Yorker staff members, and authors like Junot Diaz. So if you want to get a realistic view about how hard it is to be an emerging writer, you should check this website out ASAP. You can thank me later. If you know of a website that is helpful for writers, please share.
