Stephen Tully Jerk

by Vegetarian Trudy


once upon a time everything was legit
i was rising on the alt lit scene
everything was cool as hell
stephen tully dierks used to reblog
everything i ever wrote or drew
on popserial
he also used to reblog
gabbygabby's shit too
because her stuff is good
but now
things are different
seems like 'AWP' went to STD's head
seems like 'popserial' is 'too exclusive'
seems like only 10 ppl get published there
and that's it
STD once told me on gmail chat
'i can't reblog you anymore'
'i'm getting a lot of flack for it'
#seemsbleak STD
seems like popserial is 'shitty now'
seems like issue 3 should be the 'last'
popserial has become
poopserial
legit



Vegetarian Trudy is pissed.

  2. why would you shit-talk one of the few magazines that supports writers who barely have a name or means to live besides day jobs?

    why don't you go shit talk franzen like everyone else

    the point of an editor is that they decide what work they want to publish in their magazine

    the point of reblogging is to support the people whose work is being published in said magazine

    what's the point in shit talking a magazine that is nothing but supportive of writers

    of course it's 'exclusive' otherwise it wouldn't be a magazine

    the point of a magazine is to provide content that the editor chooses

    if you don't like what the editor chooses don't read the magazine

    why would you shit talk it

    everyone in pop serial 3 has been putting out work consistently for a bare minimum of two years

    why would you shit talk them

    just do your own work walter

    i don't care how facetious you're being
