How Are Submissions Processed In Your Magazine/press?
Most submissions arrive via Submittable. I read them and give a thumbs up or thumbs down. By the end of any given reading period, I have about 20 submissions with a thumbs up. I then narrow that down to 10 writers, two poems each, for each issue.
