Recently when I have found a conference I want to speak at, I make multiple submissions, because I really want to speak there.
There is a conference in October, which I thought I would be allowed to give two presentations for. I had two accepted.
Today I had a third accepted and was informed that only a single reading is allowed.
So I applied to too many… And I have to think about which to accept of the two I had previously agreed to. (And I have to think about the possibility that they will be upset that I have to turn one of them down. And I’m fairly sure I’m sorry which one I decided on and…)
The good news, on the other hand, is that my poetry was accepted. Even if I do not get to read it, I was pleased about that. It stinks that I don’t get to read it, but I was thrilled it was accepted.
Conferences should make it a bit more obvious how many presentations can be made.
