Submission History / Letters to elected representatives


This page will show submissions to commercial publications.  Generally, most publications take two to four weeks to answer queries or submissions. If a submission does not receive a reply within a few weeks, I will post the submission here so that readers can follow what I am submitting in relation to the ongoing debate on political issues (like same-sex marriage or Internet censorship). Should a publication contact me about publication after that, I may have to remove the entry from this site.


I am posting these on my personal site rather than my “commercial” sites because they were intended for other publications.
