Update on MYTHIC DELIRIUM submission reading

May 28th, 2017 No Comments

As of today, to my knowledge, I’ve reviewed every single submission that was sent during the March 1–May 1 submission window. If you haven’t heard back from me at this point, either I’m hanging on to your story or poems so Anita and I can go over them more thoroughly to make our final selections for issues 4.2 through 4.4, or your work has somehow fallen through the cracks. Queries welcome any time at mythicdelirium@gmail.com. Note 1: Having your work

Because much of this website is still
