Help!

I am not sure if this is the right place to post this question.  Hopefully, the moderator will redirect to the proper destination.

Is it okay to put more than one story in the same envelope when submitting to highlights? Or should each story be in its own envelope?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've never subbed a story to HL, only poetry and NF, but I think poetry is the only thing you sub more than one at a time (per envelope). I would put each in a separate sub.

I've subbed a lot of stories to HL. Personally, I would sub them one at a time. I'd probably even wait six weeks or so between subs. For one thing, your stories will be competing against each other if you send them at the same time. Plus, they get SO many fiction subs every month. You don't want to appear to be drowning them in stories. :) Just my opinion, though.

That's what I've been told, too. One at a time. I normally wait for a response, then sub.

HL is usually pretty quick with a first response too. Either a "Bear Card, or rejection within a few weeks.
