A change to our submission guidelines

by on Oct 15, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

If you head over to our submission guidelines and take a peek you’ll notice something has changed. Instead of sending sending submissions to our old Gmail account, now you’ll go through Submittable, filling out a short form and attaching your story or poem there. This isn’t a big change for writers. Many other markets use submission services like Submittable, and it makes it very easy for you to check on the status of your submission.

For the Apex Magazine team, the switch to Submittable is going to keep things more organized. Everything is in one place. Submission editors can leave notes for Jason or myself. It will be much quicker to see who has which submissions and what is the status of those submissions. Basically, it’ll be awesome.

“But,” I can hear some of you say, “I emailed a story to Apex Magazine this morning! Do I need to resubmit?” The answer is no. I went in after we made the announcement on Twitter and distributed all the remaining entries to our submission editors. We are working hard to handle all of these submissions before we dig in to the ones that will be coming in through Submittable. If, after 60 days you haven’t heard about a submission, send us a query. I’m happy to look into it for you.
