How long might it take for a short story to get published?
Catapult contributor Joe Wadlington tells the tale of publishing his first short story, "Marisa, the Pitch Pine"
At Catapult, we're big fans of transparency in publishing, because writing your stories is hard enough . . . why does figuring out how to share them with people need to be such a, uh, storm of excrement?
So, when Joe Wadlington tweeted candidly about the journey to publish “Marisa, the Pitch Pine” (finally published in Catapult's magazine on January 18, 2019), we saw a great opportunity. We asked Joe if we could share his perspective with our students--and our future Catapult contributors.
You can read Joe’s thread (and follow him!) on Twitter here, and you can read the gorgeous “Marisa, the Pitch Pine” here.
Catapult has offered innovative, high-quality writing classes in New York City since 2015, and online classes since 2016.
