>Dalkey Archive receives approximately 12,000 unsolicited manuscripts per year.

They MUST be bullshitting, or there must be a shit ton of mouthbreathing morons submitting work to them that isn’t avant-grade or experimental or anything that they would actually publish. Jesus this is bleak.

I've read anecdotes from editors and agents and they say they genuinely do get a ton of retarded submissions. At least half.

Sadly, they say they pass on a lot of good writing as well because they don't think it'll succeed in the market.
