Submission Stats – February 2022

In the interest of editorial transparency, and in the same vein as the Editor’s Note, I thought that I would publicly share the latest stats on submissions and responses.

Here are the statistics on what I’ve done editorially over the past month and year. All stats are accurate as of 11:59 p.m. on the last day of the month.

Monthly Stats – February 2022

Submissions received: 8

Submissions responded to: 10

Submissions accepted: 1

Average time from submission to response: 53 days

Longest time from submission to response: 76 days

Shortest time from submission to response: 5 days

Yearly Stats – previous 12 months

Note: these stats represent rolling totals of the preceding twelve months. Lost Colony received its first submission on October 6, 2021, so these stats don’t yet cover an entire year.

Submissions received: 56

Submissions responded to: 44

Submissions accepted: 4

Average time from submission to response: 42 days

Longest time from submission to response: 86 days

Shortest time from submission to response: 5 days

Submissions to be responded to

Submissions awaiting response: 12

Average time since submission: 33 days

Longest time since submission: 118 days (I’ve really been thinking about one submission I got back in November; the next longest is 64 days)

Shortest time since submission: 1 day

If you submitted a story longer ago than the longest time since submission and haven’t heard back from me, let me know. It may have fallen through the cracks.
