If your piece is time-sensitive or trending (i.e., related to an event in the news or a particular feast day), please indicate that in the subject line of the submission. If within two weeks’ time you do not hear back regarding your submission, your piece was not accepted for publication, but we sincerely thank you for your time and consideration.
