Hi all-

I subbed some poems to Babybug last May. Haven't heard anything back. I saw in the response time boards that others who submitted in May/June heard back in October. So now I'm wondering -- should I send a status query or resubmit? Or just wait a little longer?

I did move in July, but I sent them my new address and am still getting mail forwarded from my old address. So there is the very slight possibility that something didn't get through to me.

Thanks!

I would definitely SQ.    Is there anyway to correspond via email, I wonder, especially in light of your change of address situation.

OK, I did SQ, and glad I did because it sounds like they did not get my original sub. I sent it off again (by email this time, thank goodness).

Of course when I re-read the poems in my submission I thought they were all terrible...I guess that's what a few months will do for you! Anyway....moving on.

Good luck!  I hope they snatch up at least one of them!
