ChiZine Publications is reporting that their e-mail system crashed and deleted a number of messages, including submissions to ChiZine Publications. They’re attempting to recover these messages, but in the event they’re unable to, they ask authors to resubmit work that may have been lost in the crash.
“If anyone sent us a submission between March 1st, 2010 and November 24, 2010 and have not yet received a response,” says Matt Moore, Marketing Director for ChiZine Publications, “they can resubmit to email@example.com and indicate it is a second submission due to the email crash. If they did receive an acknowledgment of receipt of their manuscript, but have not heard further, they can also resubmit. We will be giving priority to resubmitting authors.”
You may also want to note that ChiZine Publications will be closing to unsolicited, unagented manuscript submissions from January 1st, 2011, until June 30th, 2011.
