Well, it's ALMOST October...

So I'm posting this:

Drunk pumpkins!

(Thanks to Jen for making me laugh this morning!)


Now, on a more serious note...

I've been looking through the posts on this blog, and it seems that I am always apologizing for how long it takes me to get things done! I suppose I just want those writers who are so generous with their talents to know we appreciate them! I know how frustrating it can be when editors hold on to your work for extended periods of time...

Of course, that's just the nature of the beast, I guess. My desire to be prompt and the reality of getting it all done aren't necessarily compatible.

That said, I am almost finished with fall submissions, but not quite. I have responded to the bulk of them by now, with only a small number remaining. I know I said we'd respond to them all by September 30th (today). I tend to get ambitious, setting deadlines for myself...but I also want to give these last few the attention they deserve, so I'm going to hang on to them a little longer.

These last two weeks got a little busier than expected.

I'll post the fall lineup soon.

it's actually wonderful to know that you take the submissions process so seriously! it's very refreshing. a lot of journals seem to not give much (if any) attention to the work that is sent their way. i'm sure all your writers appreciate how considerate and responsible you are. :) great work and hopefully things slow down for you soon.

Thanks so much, Angela.

We do our very best!
