In Stephens Own Words
I got a taste of that mythical recognition we all long for as writers. It may not suffice to quit my day task, however at least Im on my method!
After years of going to composing workshops and conferences, I was afraid to send my work for publication. I devoured books on writing, immersed myself in the literary neighborhood on Goodreads, and completed a low residency MFA in imaginative writing.
As a cosmetic surgeon, you would not anticipate me to suffer from an absence of confidence, however writing is so intensely personal that I simply could not pull the trigger. There were never ever adequate hours in the day to navigate to querying agents, getting my work modified, determining the maze of submission guidelines, and sending my little beloveds into a cold, unconcerned universe. I believed the unavoidable rejections would eliminate my creative impulse.
For most of us, just getting a single poem or short story published is a daunting, inaccessible objective. The problem of learning the craft of fiction writing, establishing an engaging story with an authentic voice, and then getting a representative or editor to inspect the pages of an unknown wannabe can be overwhelming—- specifically if youve got a requiring day job.
Im Dr. Stephen Weiss and Ive been a practicing urologic surgeon for over twenty years, but Im likewise S.W. Gordon, a fledgling writer. Ive dreamed of one day putting down my knife and getting the pen. Could my writing be a passport to a brand-new life—- one without ER call responsibility, malpractice risks, and governmental intrusion? Why not?
Enter Writers Relief. A few months after signing up, I placed my first story in Streetlight Magazine, and a year later on, I had a total of three short stories and 2 poems accepted for publication.
