FUTURE SHOCK SUBMISSIONS Sept 2016/17
« on: 06 April, 2017, 11:08:59 am »
Just wondering if anyone here can help with this? I'm a working writer (different medium/genres), and I made a Future Shock submission 1st Sept 2016. So far, I haven't heard back from anyone at editorial. I sent a brief email to confirm receipt of the work but I haven't heard back as of yet. So, I was just wondering if anyone here who submitted in late 2016 has heard anything, or if someone from 2000AD could confirm at what stage they are at with the last batch of submissions?

It's just one more thing off my list of follow ups!

Thanks advance, and all the best!

I've had replies in under a month and almost a year. Patience is the only option, I'm afraid.

I've known folk having nearly two years pass before getting a very brief rejection! I'd say take it off the list of follow-ups and put it in the wilderness file. You never know, though!

Keep going! Keep writing! Did you get feedback?

Not heard back yet but I asked Tharg at the 40th and he hadn't started on the pile at that time so I expect it will be a while for everyone to get a response.

I just got a brief letter saying my story wasn't sutible at present and wasn't engaging enough.

Do you agree with their assessment now that you've had feedback and time to reflect?

Best of luck and keep trying!

It's hard to say, if they had given constructive criticism then I could at least see where I could adapt, But because it was a broad general rejection it's difficult to know what was wrong.

Scott- have you sent the script to any small press anthologies?

Quite a few of them will be more than happy to give you crit. After all, if you don't get told, you won't learn...

Not sure if any are open for scripts currently but I know for a fact that if you visit the The FutureQuake Blog then once they reopen for scripts you'll be able to send scripts to them.
