Gestational Rejection

A new human being could be conceived, gestated, and born in the time it takes the guys at Words on Walls, a pretty hot literary website, to get back to you (which, by the way, they haven't done yet). Here's what the notice says when you submit: "Thanks for your communication to Words on Walls. Submissions will take us up to twelve weeks to review. For other inquiries, we will be in touch soon. Best, Words on Walls, staffeditor@wordsonwalls.net www.wordsonwalls.net" But they never do get in touch--and now the baby is crying.

At least the baby was born healthy.

But look, if you live in Utah, you might have a good chance. Or you could wait until they do a South Dakota issue for an even better one.

Awhile back I sent a story to WOW and never heard back from it again. I guess you can get away with that when you are a hot literary website. If there really is such a thing. ;)

Ditto Barcelona Review.

Double ditto The Adirondack Review (TAR), which pretty much covers the hot literary websites, no?
