First of all, I'm working on launching a fiction quarterly. I started taking submissions last October, but I had to pause everything, and push the first issue to October 2015 due to a family illness issue. I've been working toward getting back on track, and the October issue is ready to go, all I have left is some light edits and the formatting. Here is the problem. I ended up with a backlog of over 300 submissions. I hired a part-time assistant, and between us, we've pared that number down to about 90 stories. My assistant is busier with her life now, and I'm pretty sure she is burnt out on short stories, so I'm left with those 90 stories. I'm still getting 3 to 4 new subs per day and I can keep track of the new ones, but I just don't have time for the backlog. I need someone to rate these stories, so I can contact each submitter with the correct news. A lot of these stories can be gone through quickly, as I'm only taking stories that need very few edits and only stories that fit...
