Hi All;

Does anyone here know the name of the Submissions Editor for Cricket? I usually try to send submissions that show I've done my homework! If I can't find it, is it professional to say "Dear Editor"?  Thanks.  :snoopy

Anyone know the average time it takes for Cricket to send out contributor's copies these days? I had a poem in the May/June issue  and another in in the July/August issue of Ladybug. Just wondering how much longer I'll be waiting so see them. TIA!

I've always received my contributor copies right on time - i.e. the month they appear.   Payment, on the other other hand, is always months later.  I'm still waiting on payment for poems that appeared in October and November/December of 2009.   Maybe I should give them a call?

Both the Carus and Cobblestone contributor copies are now being sent directly from the warehouse instead of from the editorial offices as they used to be, so they are taking longer. It's a new system so I'm not sure exactly how long it will be. But it seems like you should have received your May/Junes by now, so you may want to call about those.
