Submissions Made Simple for Glimmer Train

Glimmer Train is a highly respected short story journal founded by Linda Swanson-Davies and her sister, Susan Burmeister-Brown. The two sisters personally read every submission they receive, and pay writers over $50,000 a year (almost 3/4 of that to emerging writers).

“After 15 years of using our own online submission system, document conversions were getting more complicated, and it was becoming increasingly difficult to keep our submission server reliably working, particularly during our swamped times,” said Linda.

“The largest factor for us was Submittable’s solid reputation and the fact that it’s been around for several years.

Linda and Susan went with Submittable after researching several other platforms. “The largest factor for us was Submittable’s solid reputation and the fact that it’s been around for several years. If we were going to make the leap, we wanted to make it only once.”

The transition to Submittable was simple and efficient. “The system is so clean and well-considered that the learning curve was not steep at all!”

“It’s grand to be able to focus on the rest of our work, knowing that the submission system is simply working.”

Linda and Susan have been impressed by how smoothly submissions flow into the system, streamlining their entire process. “It’s grand to be able to focus on the rest of our work, knowing that the submission system is simply working. We are able to be more creative and productive without the server stress.”

“We have confidence that our writers are being taken care of – and more promptly than we were sometimes able to!”

Submittable has also been great for Glimmer Train’s writers, thanks to the client support team. “The two of us have always made friendly and respectful communication with our writers a top priority, and Submittable has not been a step down. We have confidence that our writers are being taken care of – and more promptly than we were sometimes able to!”

Over the past year, Glimmer Train has been working closely with the Submittable team to hone their workflow and tailor their account to their exact process. We look forward to working more closely with Linda and Susan in the future.
