Career suicide, or smart move? You decide. I used the Kenyon Review online submission form in October and still haven't gotten a response. The submission guidelines say that a response can take UP TO 4 months. So I wrote a snippy note to the editor, and got the response that they have not even read the work yet. They said they'll get back to me.
At this point, the magic is gone, I just want my rejection so I can submit elsewhere. Like the Paris Review, right, that's the ticket. Snort.
