When to query Highlights?

Discussion started on

Thanks Starfish. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.   Patience - the hardest part of the writing game. (Well, mostly. lol)

Still waiting with the rest of you for a 1/11/17 sub--I imagine it'll be quite a while yet...

Congrats to CarrieLee and Sara!

I forgot to report in here, but I got an acceptance on an 11/18/16 poetry submission to Highlights High Five a couple of weeks ago. It was an R&R, which might be why they got to it so quickly.

Belated congratz, Melissa

I know we've been talking about Highlights on this thread, but I've been wondering if anyone is having a longer than normal wait with Ladybug as well? I' just crossed the 8 month mark myself.

AzGuy,

Did you hear anything on your June 2016 puzzle submission? Or are you still waiting?

Completely forgot to update I had a rejection from Highlights last week from an August sub. They liked it but I'd pitched it a little too young for them (which isn't a shock as I tend to write for younger kids!)

Congratulations, Carrie, Melissa, and Jayca!!  :yay

I got a couple more rejections (they said they have too many bird poems) and 1 revision request. So now I'm just waiting to hear back on that one.  :writing3

I received on R out of three. Still waiting on the other two. It was a 7 month wait.

I have been waiting on three poems since September/early October.  I sure hope I hear soon.  Usually it doesn't take this long (at least in my experience) so I'm hoping the wait is a good thing?  Congrats to all of you who have gotten acceptances!  And also to those of you who have gotten feedback:).   Has anyone else recently heard back from Highlights?  I am new to this board by the way, so this is my first time posting:)

DianaM, I saw your poem in April's High Five. Loved the last line!

I'm waiting on two Oct. poem subs myself, Mpug128. I'm hoping with you it's good news when we get news!
#117 - March 16, 2017, 04:33 PM

Cindy, really?? I didn't see it yet! Trying to remember if they told me about it (not sure which one). Guess I'll get the comp copies soon! Cool! Thanks for letting me know. :)
