What's the longest it's taken a magazine to respond to a submission?  At what point do/did you say, "meh, I'd like that back..."?


  1. Usually if I don't hear back after a couple months I just decide the target was uninterested. Most of the acceptances I've got and given out, though, have happened within a month, so I've always got that in mind.

  2. I am still kind of mad about the one that has had my piece since March of last year. That is crazy. They send me fundraising e-mails and I am like, really?

  3. yes carrie, it was. I'm rolling up on a year with Fence... but don't tell them. I want to go deep. It's a personal record.
