New Feedback Guidelines & Query Timeframes

From Thursday, January 16, 2020 going forward, we have new guidelines for our feedback option. For flash and poetry, please submit only one piece for critique. This will allow us to continue to do the feedback option, and give more detailed, in-depth critiques to each piece when considered individually as opposed to within a suite of flashes and poems. We will be adding a note to the Submittable forms soon. All feedback submissions received by Wednesday, January 15, 2020 will be reviewed in their entirety, but going forward, if we receive a feedback submission with more than one flash or poem attached, we will critique only the first one. The $10 paid for feedback is not for the length or amount of work submitted, but for the time all three editors invest in critiquing the work. We appreciate your understanding.

We also have a new timeframe for submission turnarounds. Since setting the query mark at eight weeks, our submissions volume has quadrupled. Please allow three months before querying.
