Rina Piccolo: How To Get Your Cartoons Into The New Yorker

Here is the first part of Rina Piccolo's experience of going to The New Yorker offices:

Let me say something about editors here — the good ones don’t say things to be nice. At this level of the game there’s no space for that. I know cartoonists who have sat in Bob’s office and listened to him say things about their work that could be considered unkind. Later on, I myself was told things about my drawing style that I didn’t agree with. But this is the editorial process, and if you’re a professional, you just don’t go home and cry about it. Well, you can, just don’t tell anyone about it.

This is the first part of a multi-part series of how to submit to the magazine.
