Submission guidelines are revised slightly for every submission call, but there’s one addition in particular that’s worth mentioning here: In order to ensure an unbiased review, we must ask submitters to please refrain from submitting pieces that any editors may have previously seen in a private online group or given feedback on in a workshop or other situation.
