Nothing I've seen on Medium compares to the Illumination team. I've had two of my best pieces regected by another pub before I sent them on to you guys (one went on to collect 59K views so far), but mostly it has seemed like no one could be bothered to look at the submitted work.

Right now, it seems like the topics editors are just as bad. I've had one piece up for nearly two weeks and another nearly one week without a curation decision. If those articles do get curated, they'll already be too old to be displayed high on anybody's list, which means the earning potential will be limited.

We writers can tell who cares about us. Thanks, Britni, for all you and the rest of the Illumination editors do every day.

Oh yeah, and I really like your poem.
