Imagine does not accept unsolicited manuscripts. Query by electronic mail only. No regular mail, telephone or faxed queries, please. Include clips of previously published writing. Imagine does not accept multiple submissions.
Manuscripts must be double-spaced with ample margins, submitted by attaching a text file to e-mail sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
or formatted on a Macintosh-compatible disk in Microsoft Word.
Source lists (required on all pieces) must include each source's name, telephone number and address.
I'm not generally the type of person that submits to a lot of places, because I get turned down because of my age. However, now that I'm 18 I think they will take me a little more seriously.
Could anyone tell me what the quote above means? First they say they don't want "unsolicitied" manuscripts, but yet they advertised for freelance writers. Then they say send a query. Next they say they want originals, AND you have to send them the manuscript formatted so a MAC can read it. Then I understand #3, they want sources... but what if I don't do any interviews?

This is from their writer's wanted page.
Also, they seem to have a LONG reply wait. They said it could be from 2 (or 4) to 24 months because it is a quarterly magazine. Isn't this a bit long if they want some time sensitive information?
