Editor's Choice: For $4, you will receive detailed feedback on your work. This will take the form of 1-3 detailed paragraphs, depending on the genre of your submission, from the editor or assistant editor on your work. The editor will choose what to focus on in their feedback, which will not include line edits or proofreading but will generally focus on what might be working or not working in a piece, as well as suggestions for further development and revision. The feedback will be honest, engaged, and hopefully provide you with valuable insight into Sundog Lit's aesthetic and editorial process.
Please note: This is not an expedited response option. This is also not meant to open a dialogue or discussion. Further questions directed to the editor or attempts to refute/argue with the editor's feedback will not be given a response, and it won't make us like you very much. Bear in mind that this feedback is a service you are paying for, and thus should not be conflated with a request for more work. If an editor wants to see more from you, that will be clearly stated in your submission response.
