I queried two papers for another column. Sent articles along with the queries. Haven’t heard back. I'm thinking no response means no. And that’s okay.
Submitted to a magazine a rather long piece about a life event which changed our family in amazing ways, forever. Got a rejection on that one fairly quickly because the piece is time sensitive (September) and lead-time is running out.
Pitch points on that one:

Have a great summer boys and girls.
