Congrats, Jayca!!


Over the last few days, I've received about five R's from them, Carrie. Ironically, Babybug was my first magazine acceptance of any kind when I started writing for kids. And they accepted three poems at once! Those were the days. ;)

Just want to share: I just received my first acceptance to Cricket!

The funny thing is, I subbed the story twice. First, by snail mail. After 8 months with no response, I subbed by Submittable. Four months later, I received a form R by snail on the original sub. I considered withdrawing the Submittable sub, but ended up deciding to leave it there. And today, 5 months after the 2nd sub, I got an email acceptance! (So glad I didn't withdraw after that first rejection!)

Congratulations, Sara! It really proves how subjective things are, and also that timing plays a big part in the process. Way to go!

Yes, Cindy, it IS nice! I've been trying for a long time with Spider and Cricket, and have a stack of form Rs to show for it!

I've subbed one ms to Ladybug 4 weeks ago.[ via Submittable]    Is it too soon to send them something else?

How many submissions to ANY of the 'bug' magazines do you submit?    One at a time?

Thanks for your insights and info on this.  =)

Congratulations, Sara!!  :partytime I'm happy dancing with you.

And yes, a similar thing happened to me several years ago. It's definitely a subjective business we're in.

Thanks, Ev!

And Liz, I usually have only one sub with each bug magazine at a time. So I might have one with Spider and one with Cricket, but not send another until I've heard on the first. Other people might do differently, though.

Yay, Sara! :talking:  I sent a poem to Babybug in November ("in progress") and a poem to Spider Feb. 10th ("received.")  I check Submittable every day, too! :neck
