Dear [Censored],

I am the submission editor for several publications and each publication has a specific way to submit your work so that I know which publication you are submitting to. At this time, based on the way you submitted this short story, I have no idea which publication it is to be read for. Please go back to the publications' "Calls for Submissions" page and follow the instructions on that page and resubmit your work.

Thank you so much,
Jennifer Brozek


I write this kind of email at least twice a month and have for years. All I received in the email was a "Hi, I hope you enjoy my story and I hope to hear from you soon," sort of message. The subject of the email was "Submission" and that's it.

I could make all kinds of snarky comments on BDSM related topics involving masochism but that would be just too easy.

I've sent a few of those out myself recently.

I also get the folks who clearly do know their work does not fit the project but send it anyway (this mostly happens with Flames Rising).
