Submission of articles on Matador – Clarification


just a QQ because I’m lost.

How many days are we supposed to wait for an answer after having submitted an article to Matador? And is there always an answer, if positive or not?

Just because as freelancers I believe we’re in contact with many magazines and if something is rejected here there’s for sure someone else interested in the same article and ready to publish it.

Hey Veruska, before the submission form there’s a bit of text that reads: Note that you will only be contacted if your work was accepted. Normal response time is 1-3 weeks.

So if you don’t hear back after 3 weeks it’s safe to say it was not accepted. The editors do not respond to every pitch.

Thanks Carlos. I didn’t notice that part of the text!
