These guys talk about what confronted me as a writer. Interviewer and interviewee, both Catholic, discuss the challenge of writing and the more difficult challenge of getting published. Publishing is on empty today. I could show you junk poetry and short stories that win prizes from a variety of digital publishers.
I encouraged an aspiring black woman to write and submit her work because she is what publishers want, better yet if you are Latinx, LGBTQ++++, or a trans non-binary TikTok star influencer. Weekly jargon changes make it impossible to be politically correct one hundred percent of the time. There might be a young Catholic entrepreneur out there who can create a new contra publishing house for genre writing and literary writing that is both intellectual and profitable.
