Stonecrop is designed and edited by a small team of students and faculty. Response times will vary; in general, expect notification of submission status after submission deadlines have passed. Notifications are sent in order of submission date. We ask for your patience during this time.

If your work has been published elsewhere during the current review period, we ask that you withdraw the work(s) via your Submittable Dashboard or CONTACT US with the details.
