The submission period for the upcoming April issue has ended, though we are still accepting rewrites we've requested until March 15th. So our final tally isn't necessary the final tally. Here is what we have so far:
We have received 273 submissions.
We have held 4 stories for voting and have 12 submissions before the editorial staff.
So far we have rejected 139 submissions, sent 12 back for rewrites, and had 4 withdrawals. We have 102 submissions still in our inbox.
We are currently reviewing submissions received between February 1st and February 7th. We will work through the remaining slush as quickly as we can, but should be finished before March 19th. If you haven't heard from us by then, please query.
