Deleted submissions

We said we'd be cracking down on submissions that do not include the required information. We are. Tonight I just deleted SEVEN submissions that didn't have the story's title in the subject line.

These authors will not receive receipt emails - their emails weren't even opened. So if you sent us a submission and haven't received a receipt email, resend it with all the required information and a correct subject line.

I have a feeling we'll be getting dozens of queries at the end of the quarter saying they haven't heard back about their submission. We keep a log of all the properly submitted stories, and if those authors aren't on the list I'll have to assume they didn't follow our guidelines.

This is why it's extra important to look over your submission before you hit that little 'SEND' button. Go over everything three or four times if you have to. It's better to be safe than sorry.
