Congratulations, Rui, for being invited to apply. I have more than 1200 followers, submit 8-16 times a month, but I've been writing mainly poetry, which gets fewer views often and fewer dollars always. How can I shout loud enough or pester someone often enough to at least get an invitation?

Thanks for any advice and/or help you can give me. I hate to ask, and feel really tacky about it, Rui, but I don't know what else to do.

Again, congratulations!
