One Story has been accepting submissions online pretty much since our launch. We chose this route because it allows us better tracking of submissions and saves writers the expense of printing and mailing their work. It also saves quite a bit of paper.
For the past year or so, Devin Emke, the developer of our system, has been working with the Council of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP) to develop a customizable version for other literary magazines. We’re pleased to announce that Submission Manager is now available for sale at CLMP’s web site. Several magazines (Fence, Jubilat, and Ploughshares) are already using the system, and quite a few others will be coming online soon.
We’re so proud of this product and can’t wait to show it off. CLMP will be hosting demonstrations in their offices this fall. If you’d like to be invited to these, or if you’ve got questions about Submission Manager, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
