I haven't heard yet, either. I wasn't going to worry since the closing date was set as 2/28, and I assume she's pretty busy right now. But I guess it couldn't hurt to follow up with a short email.


EDIT: Thanks for the heads-up, guys! She got back to me and it turns out my first try didn't get to her. I've re-sent the story, and followed it up with another email, just in case my attachment was somehow causing a problem.

She just posted to another forum...

Hi guys, just popping in to say hello and stuff but...

More important! I've been offline for a couple of days (i have a dongle thingie to keep me online during the move but the British storms are hitting here big time and totally knocking it out). Anyway, there were two messages asking me if I'd recieved their work, and I hadnt!! So if you have not heard back from me by Monday (I'm trawling through my other folders in the meantime just in case) then assume I have NOT had it. I can only apologise and blame gmail. I WILL respond even if only to say I have it, so you should have heard from me!
Thank you all so much for your patience!
Very best wishes during the mega floods

My dear, can't you increase the word limit by another 1k? I already have an original unpublished short story (ghosts) on my hard drive and it is 2125 words.

Otherwise, I guess I'd have to write a new one again.

I don't believe the editor is a member here at MR.

This deep into it I'm pretty sure the specs aren't going to change.

Sorry, but I don't say over the rules. I just sharing the opportunity I found. That being said - I suspect we can all guess that at this stage (3 anthology) with only a few days left - they are not going to change any rules.

Yes on Word attachment. The current anthology is formated like a traditional book - with paragraph indents. So that is what I would submit in.

You may have already stated this, but should the submission be in RTF format?

As far as I know they want Word documents with as clean of formatting as you can. Since Word can open RTF, that might be okay, but I am all about making it as easy on them as possible, so I would suggest you said a Word doc in.

Thank you.

A word doc would then be a .docx

Or .doc I only use docx anymore as the days of issues with compatibility them seem behind us. I did sent a query in for the official answer to this question, but I sent in Word documents and both were accepted so at least that much is good.
