Lately we’ve been getting deluged by people sending in simultaneous submissions, even though our guidelines quite obviously state we don’t accept them. Maddeningly, some people are even including all of the editors’ email addresses in the To line, with some submitting to well over 30 magazines at a time! 30. That’s stunning. I seriously hope all of these magazines are blacklisting these people.
Some people are withdrawing their submissions because other publications have accepted them, even though they never notified us they were simultaneous submissions.
Pay attention to guidelines when you’re submitting. Don’t send in poetry simultaneous submissions to RRR. They’ll go unread and will get you blacklisted. Be a professional. Show you’re serious. Do the right thing.
