This is just a quick updated to let you know that although we have been reviewing submissions in a timely manner, we are backlogged in terms of sending out the rejections letters.
Both of the staff members qualified to handle rejection letters have been MIA (including me), leaving one lonely admin to send out receipt emails and post submissions before our editorial board. We are both back, now, but the upcoming issue will consume most of my time.
I hope to post accurate slush stats next week. For now, all I can tell you is that the editors have not reviewed any submissions received after April 12th.
