Big Blue Meanies
The Yolo Crow is now 7 volumes old and growing. We've seen a progressive increase number of submissions we receive every quarter, which is great. We've also seen a large increase in submissions that do not follow our submission guidelines -- not so great. In response to this increase, we've had to become more strict in our submission policies.
Henceforth, if a submission arrives without a SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope), the author will not be informed of the submission's acceptance status. If a submission arrives without a signed submission form, or without the required four copies of the piece in the proper format, the submission will be discarded without consideration for publication and without notification. We at The Crow apologize for being big blue meanies on this subject. You are welcome to resubmit pieces following the complete, proper guidelines at any time.
