    Hi there! So it’s halfway through May … when will the May Market Report be published? I’ve become reliant on this excellent feature to keep track of good markets to apply to, but submission window announcements are often extremely time sensitive, and these reports are measured from the beginning of the month. As I recall, when this one came out on the 13th, two markets that were listed as “Open” had already closed.

    I don’t want to get on anyone’s case – I’m sure you’re very busy, and there’s a lot to put out there that’s important – but I just thought I would let you know that I *am* paying attention to this feature, it *is* important to me, and I simply can’t make head or tails out of the Grinder without it because there’s just so much information to search through; so thank you for putting it out, and I eagerly await your next update!
