If you haven’t yet sworn off the SASE and committed yourself to sending only to publications that take electronic submissions, you’ll definitely want to take note of the latest U.S. postal rate increase announcement. As of May 11, the price for a 1-ounce First-Class Mail stamp will increase from 42¢ to 44¢. So if you’re mailing anything now with the expectation that you may not hear back before then, you may want to stock up on the correct postage–or dig up those Forever Stamps–and prepare your SASEs accordingly.
