I was watching an H.P. Lovecraft documentary last night, and I noted how in the reenactment the actor was writing in a longhand notebook. I'll put aside the questions of whether he used a typewriter or did longhand for now.
Was there a specific point when magazines stopped taking handwritten manuscripts? Of course I can see why, the main reason I'm thinking of is not everyone writes neatly. But also how long it takes to actually transcribe pages to electronic media.
Was handwritten manuscripts still taken during the time of pulp magazines?
As someone who sometimes writes stories longhand I never plan to transcribe, such as Home From The Corn Maze, and Eternity Of The Night. I might transcribe Spirit Of Clove, Odd And Evens, and The Rat's Pet, and Friend Of The Butterfly later.
Yes all middle grade fiction.
