We want to thank everyone who submitted a story to Best of Ohio Short Stories: Volume II. We received far more submissions than anticipated, which resulted in a fantastic pool of stories we now have to narrow down. (This is a good problem to have.)
The large number of submissions and the high quality of those stories makes the selection process time consuming for our volunteers, and we appreciate your patience as we continue our selection process.
In order to give ourselves time to fairly evaluate each submission, we’ve pushed back our deadline for completing our preliminary review to September 15, 2015.
All authors whose stories are still being considered for the anthology will be emailed directly by this date.
Waiting to hear back from a publication is agonizing. Know that our volunteers are working diligently to make their determinations fairly, accurately, and as swiftly as possible. Thank you for your patience!
We ask that you hold all inquiries about your story until after September 15. For all other questions, contact us here.
