If this has already been posted somewhere, sorry...I looked briefly and didn't see it.

I was thrilled to find out that the Cricket Mags now accept (and prefer) email subs! Not only that, but they have a cool tracking system so that you can check on your submission at any time, so no more status queries or wondering if your sub got lost in the mail/spam!

The link wasn't easy (for me) to find, so I thought I'd post it here for all of my BB buddies: https://cricketmag.submittable.com/submit

Really appreciate your sharing this with us, Jayca!   :flowers2

I wonder if pieces submitted now online will be read sooner than pieces sent several months ago via regular mail. In the past, I've heard that if we don't hear a response in x months, we should just resubmit, not try to status query. How long do you think we should wait before resubmitting online?  Anybody any ideas about this?

Thank you SO much for sharing!  I was getting ready to submit to the Cricket Mags and came across your post. I just subbed through the online system and love it!  The tracking system looks wonderful! 

Best wishes to everyone and happy writing!   :goldstar

Thanks, Jayca, for this information. It'll make submissions easier and checking the status of submission easy, too!

However, I hope it doesn't result in the Cricket mags getting overwhelmed with queries and submissions (especially inappropriate ones).

Love the online submissions!  It is hard to keep from checking status. Nothing in the "accepted" column yet, but nothing in the "rejected" either. There's always hope!  ::-) I think I check it almost as often as my son's online grades -though he does very well in school - it becomes habit to log in most days! 

Best wishes to everyone!
