As many of you also submit to this market, I figured I’d post something that surprised me here. I submitted to Weird Tales early this year. About two months later, I received an email with a list of how to improve your submissions to Weird Tales. I thought this was a rejection letter.
Cut to several months later, I finally got a paper rejection. It was a decent personal rejection. I agreed with everything they said and in fact did make those changes when I resubmitted the story.
I just didn’t want anyone else to get confused.
