My opinion as a writer? I think there is a difference between truth and fact. Truth is a personal opinion/feeling; meanwhile, fact is an undeniable, communal understanding.
The goal? 50-60 well written and thoroughly revised pages of a manuscript that I can turn into a novel after graduation.
I have the unique experience of working both sides of Submittable. I have used the site to submit my work as a writer, and I have managed a literary magazine's submittable account.
