We have now read over 200 submissions, so I’d like to provide another look at our statistics and process.
I bought three stories from the second 100 subs, now totaling 7. 16% advanced to the second round (as compared to 25% from the first batch).
Three stories from the 2nd 100 advanced to the third round. There are now 10 stories in round 3.
One story each from first and second hundred received a rewrite request and I’m waiting for the authors to decide if they want to make the changes.
There are presently exactly 214 stories either on submission or already responded to at UFO. 71 of them have been recorded on Duotrope.
I’m a huge fan of reading these sort of statistics at other markets, so I hope others will find these updates of interest, as well.
