I submitted a short story this morning to the quilting magazine, The Quilt Life. It’s the production featuring Alex Anderson and Ricky Tims. One thing I enjoyed about it was the approach, looking at quilting from multiple angles. It was NOT just a pattern magazine.
So… I emailed the story in and immediately received an automated response — thanks but don’t call us, we’ll call you.
And about ten minutes ago I received another email. This was from the Editor-in-Chief. Imagine such immediate feedback! I was stoked!
She said, “HI Melanie, I love it!”
And then she said, “Unfortunately, the American Quilter’s Society has decided to cease publication of The Quilt Life. The October issue will be the last one.
You could shop it around to other quilt magazines and get a response, I’m sure. Good luck!”
Well, so the good news is, she LOVED it!
