Anonymous asked: Hello. I actually really love Be About It and read the old issues online, and I was wondering if you could estimate the percent of submissions you actually publish. I imagine you get lots and I'm curious! Thanks, stay fabulous.

The book begins with some glowing accolades, from A. Razor and Carrie Hunter. These were apt, but I felt that nothing set the tone better than Naughton’s own introduction:
I wrote these love song poems for Billy Corgan and a ghost.
everything I do is wrong
