Are you familiar with those lit mags that you send an enthusiastic submission to, only to discover that weeks (perhaps even months) later you have received no acknowledgement, never mind a super lovely, complimentary acceptance email? Me too. What’s worse: I fear that Zest Lit may have snuck into that category. Isn’t it just as well that the new year is fast approaching? You know, it brings with it the obligatory opportunity to create life-altering resolutions such as: reply to all contributors in a timely fashion, post issue 2’s contributor interviews sometime this year (er, that one might be a long-shot at this stage…), etc, etc.
Let me take this opportunity to apologise for the slackness on the editorial/correspondence front. As I type, I am spraying WD40 in the rusted up cogs of this literary machine. Keep your finger on the refresh button on that email inbox, some long awaited mail should be winging its way to you very soon!
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
