Well, I didn’t get questions, so I didn’t post any answers.

My slush this week has all been very professional and normal. There haven’t been any photographs of grandchildren or novels on gray paper. No one has singlespaced their entries or sent only a page of text. Bravo authors! Of course, I didn’t have anything that I accepted, but at least it wasn’t because the submission was strange. Most of the submissions just weren’t appropriate for the presses. My favorites are the works written for adults but sent to us anyway. Clearly we’re a children’s press.
