FAQ

Should I leave my name off the submission?

That's up to you. It doesn't make any difference to us.

How long does it take to hear back from a regular submission?

We try to keep the response time under one month.

Where do you post contest winners?

You'll be notified one way or another via email; make sure Submittable is on your safe list. Winners and finalists are announced at lascauxreview.com/communique and elsewhere.

How long does it take?

That's a little trickier. Since all readers are volunteers, the job gets done when it gets done. Our goal is to wrap things up within three months of the closing date of a contest.
