Writing is a Waiting Game

I am currently waiting upon…

  • Painted Bride Quarterly (date submitted: January 4th; what submitted: 1 fiction, 1 non-fiction)  Official Response Time:  unknown
  • Cicada (date submitted: February 16th; what submitted: 2 poems)  Official Response Time: up to 4 months
  • storySouth (date submitted: June 1st; what submitted: 1 fiction)  Official Response Time: 2-6 months
  • Weave magazine (date submitted:  June 1st; what submitted: 1 non-fiction)  Official Response Time: 3 months

Also, I’m waiting for The Stillwater Review to get back to me, months after they sent the congratulatory acceptance email for my poem.  They asked for a short bio, but never responded to several questioning emails about how I could get a hold of a copy of the publication or when the issue was coming out.  It’s a new poetry journal (I know, I know, I’m not really a poet.  But I swear I’ve written one good one in my entire life and this was it), but it’s associated with Sussex Community College so it’s legitimate.

I just googled and stumbled upon a video for The Stillwater Review’s launch, apparently.  The cover looks beautiful.  I’d really like to get my hands on a few copies!

Does anyone have any specific information about who to contact in this matter?
