As is my usual procedure, I’ll be closing to queries over the holidays so that I can spend time getting caught up on reading I’ve already requested, and so that I don’t come back to work in 2012 with a backlog already in place. With that said, the final day to send your query for review this year will be Friday, December 16th. Any queries received after the 16th will be deleted unread. I’ll reopen for queries on Monday, January 9th.
I meant to share this last week, but here’s the next in Poets & Writers’ series on the people in publishing. This article is a Q&A with four young editors — again, I’d take umbrage at the term “young editors” — they are the heads of their imprints or divisions, with many years of experience below their belts. Still, they provide some interesting insight into publishing.
