The contributor’s risk understood

I found this helpful on Image Journal: “the risk of sharing work with us”. What I say there may be an oxymoron, for why is the risk of sharing work with them helpful? Let me bring in the context. They’re saying submitting work is a risk: when someone shares their work with an editor, it is a risk. Sharing one’s work with an editor is exhilarating and nerve wracking. One doesn’t know the outcome, but is excited nevertheless. A risk in other words. Yes, risk is the right word; the word risk illuminates what I do when I submit articles, stories, and devotions. And Image Journal appreciate that in a writer as do many other journals.

    1. Thanks for your reply. Sorry about the delay in replying. Been snowed under. I forgot to say that I have never thought of the risk when submitting to publishers for years, only until recently, when I started out submitting to books publishers. The next level I think.
