I don’t know about other magazines, but we do have tiers of rejections. For the slush pile we have two form rejections: One reads “Thank you for submitting your work…We regret that we are unable to publish it.” The other includes the line “we like your work and would like to see more of it.” Work that is submitted directly to me usually receives a personal reply, by hand or by e-mail, depending. And then there are those cases when a submission gets lost on my computer, or underneath somebody’s desk and the months go by…but we are trying to eliminate that tier.
In The Millions, editor Lorin Stein comments on rejection tiers from literary magazines.

“Because the googly eyes were self-adhesive, they were the best accessory. So we would force [the children] to take home dozens of glue-smeared socks festooned with the rolling eyes of maddened stallions, and that was the community service requirement, and I suppose college admissions people looked at that, and thought something, or would have were it not there.”
I said to myself, This is my job now, I’m a writer, and that means I have to write regularly and not just when I feel like it.

They never make the cool stuff in adult sizes :(
Buy two, cut single duvets down the middle, stitch together.
Just going to watch this all night, if that’s quite all right with you?
The idea of ‘women’s writing’ shocks me. I think that in art we are androgynous.
The Kickstarter for Bee and PuppyCat series is “live,” as they say.
Natasha Allegri’s been a key artist on Adventure Time over the years (Fionna and Cake, anyone?), and Frederator and Cartoon Hangover are now super keen on producing and airing her own cartoon series. Here’s the link, for those of you up for tossing a few bucks into the kitty (and for those of you, too, who just want to see what the fuss is about). Thank you.
We want to make more Bee and PuppyCat cartoons - even a whole series of them! Help us by contributing to a Bee and PuppyCat Kickstarter.This Kickstarter is the fastest way to get you a series of Bee and PuppyCat cartoons. It is also the best way to help Frederator give Natasha Allegri, the creator of Bee and PuppyCat, the most creative freedom. And you can get some awesome Bee and PuppyCat stuff that will not be available anywhere. Your help is crucial.Thank you,-The Cartoon Hangover Team
