Rate Your Story Closed to 2012 Submissions

Hi All!

Thanks for a really great year!  We had a record number of submissions last month, and we're still getting through the last couple weeks of November submissions.

We would like to let you know that we are closed to general submissions for the remainder of the year.

(Please note that this does NOT apply to conference attendees who have received a handout with instructions for submitting even when we are closed.  Please follow the guidelines given to you by Miranda Paul at the conference.)

If you submitted on or before November 22, 2012 we will return your critique before the end of the year. Any submissions received after that date and before January 2, 2013 will be deleted (sorry, our wonderful panel of volunteer judges need some time off).

Throughout December, we'll post a few updates and possibly a giveaway or two.  And don't forget that we are accepting inquiries if you'd like to be a guest poster on Rate Your Story.  Our pageviews per month have peaked over 2,700.  Consider writing an article with the aim of getting good exposure and reaching a wide audience of pre-published and aspiring authors.  Just send us a proposal for your article to our email at the contact page.

Have a Safe and Happy New Year!

  1. Hi Miranda and all at RYS...
    A BIG thank you for all of your hard work...yes, you all do deserve some time off. I hope your Holiday Season is filled with joy, peace and time for relaxing and rejuvenating. :)

    I plan to submit a couple of stories in the new year...I was so pleased with the feedback you gave me for "The Boots of Dylan McGee" was extremely helpful!

    I'd also love to contribute a guest post...I'll email you separately about that. :)
    All the best...See you next year. :)
