Our magazine's first submissions deadline was this past weekend, and we could not be happier with the high quality, quantity, and diversity of the submissions we've received in every category. Thanks so much to everyone who sent us work. We know you've sent us your babies, and we'll be gentle and careful with each one.
What happens over the next couple of months? All of the editors are now busy reading, and you'll hear back from the editor in charge of your category if he/she has any questions or ideas. Some of you submitted months ago; thank you for your immense patience. You're still in the running. We will be getting in touch with acceptances about the print issue no sooner than early April, and about online publication about a month after that.
Meanwhile, if you've submitted your work elsewhere and it has been accepted, please let us know asap. And if you haven't heard from us by May, please reach out.
Inspired & grateful,
Juli, Editor of TSLR
