in less than 8 months. You know who you are, Lit Mag that doesn’t like simultaneous submissions, electronic submissions (that are “Destroyed Pronto”), or timeliness.

You run a great Mag–unusually tall and slender, full of some really smart poetry–but your slush pile is not that big. I get it, a certain looseness with time and its forward momentum, but c’mon, 8 months?–that’s 240 days give or take. You can form reject us quicker than that.

Give it a try sometime, I know you con-do-it
