Submissions Numbers: Flatmancrooked
Duotrope (which, frankly, I haven’t been checking out lately, so anyone with more current information, please send it along) offers percentage of acceptance in regard to journals, but only in regard to the numbers offered by Duotrope users. In this new series, I’ll be sharing information gathered regarding the volume of submissions received by a journal. After the jump, read Flatmancrooked‘s numbers. And thanks, Flatmancrooked (click here to get to them), for the information. It means a lot to the writers submitting:
Response time for work submitted varies wildly. Two months would be long, while a week would be average, a few days not altogether uncommon. We currently (as of January, ‘09) receive approximately 500 submissions a month. We do not currently pay for online publication. We profit share for print anthology publication (see below). We’ve typically published online, and later consider printing. We do not have a particular formula for placing things in print as opposed to online-only.
