Title: sub more than one rebus at a time?
Post by: Sara on December 07, 2008, 06:25 PM
Has anyone ever sent in more than one rebus with a sub?  I'm subbing one for the first time, and rebuses are so short, they remind me of crafts, which I sub three at a time.

Any thoughts?

I've never subbed more than one at a time, but I would think it'd probably be okay.

The disadvantage is that you'll potentially be competing against yourself.  Magazines typically use more crafts than they do rebuses, so subbing several crafts may not give an editor the mental caution, "I better not accept too many of these because I don't want to get too backlogged," but they might think that about rebuses.  But...maybe not.
