Making a magazine 4

Actually, the title could be "Cleaning up a magazine."

Readers and other folks sometimes say my job is so glamorous, and I have to chuckle if not laugh out loud. There is nothing attractive about returning almost 30 photo submissions, which is on today's agenda.

The task involves various little steps to ensure that the photographers receive all of their slides and transparencies, that the submissions leave in sufficiently protective packages, that the certified mail receipts and domestic return receipts contain the necessary info, that my records can answer photogs' questions about delayed or missing submissions.

The time-consuming process is by no means glamorous. Let's add a little reality to the myth perpetrated by silly television shows! (I'm lookin' at you, "Suddenly Susan" and "Just Shoot Me.")
