Other comments regarding submissions to the NC Review:
- Please be sure to include adequate postage on your return envelopes; postage rates have
changed recently, and your old stamps may not be enough to cover costs.
- Again, remember to include ALL contact information, particularly email address. Due to
production restraints, submissions that do not include all of these requirements will be
returned to sender and will not be reviewed by the NC Review staff until such information
has been received.
- The staff reads submissions from September to May. You may send submissions at any
time throughout the year, but your queries and comments may not be addressed
immediately due to the schedule of the publication.
