How long does it take to hear back from you?

We receive more than 2000 submissions per year and publish approximately twenty pieces in each quarterly issue. We aim to respond within three to four months of the manuscript cut-off date, but it can sometimes take much longer. (Check our home page for information about upcoming themes and cut-off dates.) You can log into Submittable, our online submissions tool, to check the status of your submission any time. If you find your submission is "In Progress" for a long time, it may often mean that your piece is being considered by an editor for potential inclusion in an upcoming issue. If you haven’t heard from us after six months, feel free to email submissions@roommagazine.com, and we'll let you know where your submission is in the reviewing process.
