Simultaneous submissions.

We decided not to accept simultaneous submissions at Prole from the start. That means we don’t want pieces that are being considered elsewhere. As both the editors here also submit work to literary publications we understand the frustrations of having to wait months to find out if our work is accepted. That is why we try to respond within two to three weeks to every piece that is sent to us. Sometimes that is a rejection; sometimes notice that the piece has been short-listed with an indication of when a final decision will be made; sometimes a quick acceptance.

Prole is a small concern but time is very valuable. We cannot afford to be let down a week or so before going to print. The print proof takes a long time to prepare.

We treat all our submissions and writers with respect and honesty. We ask them to treat us in the same way.
