Notes from the Slushpile

Rule #1: Do not add a publication’s submissions email address to your podcast or newsletter or blog distribution list.

I understand the frustrations of submitting and getting your name and work out there, but please, for the love of god, do not put a publication’s submissions email address on your podcast or newsletter or blog email list, unless and only if the editor has requested you to do so. Really, it’s very bad form and many publications are run by volunteer staff, MMR included. Smack hand. You know who you are.
