        For Oh Baby, we’ll try to have everything done by the end of Sept.

    If we submitted a poem for the “Oh Baby” issue, will we hear either way if our work was accepted? Thanks in advance!

      Yes. We’ll let everyone know once everything is read. Thanks for sending us your writing.

    Hi there. What’s the email adress for submission queries? I submitted to you on 6th January 2013 and the six months stipulated in your guidelines passed some time ago.

      Hi Cathy,

      We are a little backlogged, but trying to cull through submissions now for Mama Said. We will be sending notices for those themed submissions by Sept. 15. I hope this helps.

    Hi Josh,

    I sent you an email about 10 days ago but haven’t got a reply. I just want to check with you to see whether my copies have been sent off to me, as I haven’t got them. Thanks.

      Hi Liang,

      I’m sorry about that. Yes the magazine is finished and printed but I have not received them yet. When I do they will be mailed out. I’m sorry about the delay.
