Submishmash was founded in Missoula, Montana, by CEO Michael FitzGerald, a novelist (http://www.radiantdays.com/) and software programmer. Mr. FitzGerald's simple idea—to help editors with the overwhelming number of unsolicited submissions they receive (known in the industry as the “slush pile”)—struck a chord with editors and publishers. The company, now at the forefront of the changing publishing world, developed a growing base of over 100,000 users since launch last September.
