The Alchemy Press Book of Urban Mythic editors, Jan Edwards and Jenny Barber, report:
“It is heart-warming to receive so many subscriptions to our anthology, and we editrixes really do enjoy seeing who has submitted what in these early stages.
However ... a staggering one in four subs are risking the reject bin simply because the writer has misunderstood the guidelines; not read the guidelines; or, worst of all, assumed the guidelines don't apply to them. To give yourself the best possible chance, read our guidelines, especially for style and subject preferences. Anything that ignores these runs the risk of being returned unread.”
