I received an email today informing me that The School Magazine would be accepting only email submissions as of January 29th.  This, after I had just mailed a packet to them last week!

Isn't that great! They've done a nice job on my work in the past.

I got that email, too. Looks like they'll just be looking for theme-related submissions now. Is that how you read it?

And Jody, I agree. Love that magazine!

Well, the pieces I already sent do not fit any of those themes.  But it looks like that's how they are working it now- perhaps to keep a lid on all the submissions that might flood in with easy email.

I've never subbed to them because they only took hard copy submissions. Will have to check them out again. And theme lists are the best.
Thank you Cindy!
