Closing to Submissions

by on Oct 1, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

October is here and with that comes a time of reflection and looking towards the new year.

Looking at the Apex Magazine submissions, I am incredibly proud of the work our slush team has done this year. We have accepted some truly amazing stories, and we wouldn’t have found them without the hard work and dedication of our first readers.

That being said, at the moment, we’re falling a little behind on slush. Not horribly, but enough that I think it’s time to pause, get caught up, and give ourselves a much deserved break. We typically close to submissions during December to give our slush readers time to relax over the holidays and to give Jason and I time to catch up. We’re going to close a little earlier this year. That way everyone can work to get caught up  on the backlog of submissions, and maybe even Jason and I can take a break from reading slush during December.

Apex Magazine will close to submissions on October 15th. We will reopen on January 1st, 2019.

This means if you’ve been meaning to submit that perfect story to Apex, you have two weeks to polish it up and submit it. If it isn’t in by October 15th, you will have to wait until 2019.
