New Myths

Postby morshana » Fri Apr 29, 2016 7:13 am

Anyone else waiting on New Myths?

I submitted a story about 100 days ago. New Myths has set reading periods, and for each reading period they select stories for two separate publication issues. My story wasn't selected for the first issue back in March, and wasn't rejected, either. Now some acceptances have gone out for the second issue, and there are just a handful of people left on Duotrope (no idea how many people in total are waiting for a response). No idea if there are any slots left for the June issue and wondering if I should query.

Anyone else submitted here or waited this long?

I had a story that was held by them. They notified me of this in January, said I would hear from them in late April. Then about a week ago I did get a rejection from them.
If you didn't get the hold notice a week or so after submitting, I'd query.

Like Aaron I received a hold request followed by a 107 day rejection last week.

Thanks! I'll query.

Hm... maybe I never received a Hold request because I notified them it was a simultaneous submission?

At any rate, I've queried and will surely be receiving my rejection any day now. wotf007
