did you ever hear back from any of them?


also, Microcosm issued this statement (from http://microcosmpublishing.com/blogifesto/2011/01/2010-financial-st... ):

"In the future we will focus primarily on publishing instructional DIY books and distributing DIY themed, politically powerful, and popular zines. 

Distributed zines will be required to sell at least 40 copies per issue per year in order to remain in the catalog. Because we have such an extensive zine catalog and pay zinemakers before the zines have sold, we end up buying a lot of zines that sadly live their lives in the packing room, not being read."


so chances are, if you didn't send them 40 copies, your zines won't be sold. hopefully they return them to you.


also, I wouldn't work with them anyway if I were you.
