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.
