Pagan Bitchings


I should like to have if not a bitch, then a minor moan about editors of Pagan related publications who...

1. Do not answer email, even when they solicit submissions by email

2. Having answered email, then disappear.

3. Having answered email and joined in discussion, accept a piece, and promise a publication date. And then disappear, leaving one to wonder if the piece will ever see the light of day, needs to be resubmitted elsewhere, CAN be resubmitted elsewhere, etc...

See head hit wall...

Submit elswhere if they are not going to respond. I submit at times to small press lit mags and I carpet bomb the market when I do. I don't think it is the big deal that it once was.

I do submit elsewhere. I don't carpet bomb - I prefer to deal with people I know will respond, and I rarely do the multiple submission bit; a number of the places I submit won't take them, anyway.

That rant was occassioned by one large, well known magazine which has had something of mine for well over a year now, with a promise of publication - a year ago. They have not responded to email queries. I gave them what I thought was a reasonable amount of time and then simply wrote and withdrew the piece - it's in press elsewhere.
