Some sample literary journal wait times from my Duotrope submission tracker page. Basically, it's normal to wait six months, only to get a form rejection at the end.


P means pending, not poem. Red P means it's gone beyond the average response time. Is that good? Bad? Probably just means the mostly-volunteer staff of the journal is overwhelmed.
