Three days after submissions closed, and I’ve finally logged, counted, and sent all the art and poetry onward to the judges. What a GREAT turnout—thanks to everyone who submitted!
I’ve also sent all confirmation notifications regarding receipt of your submissions. If you haven’t heard from me, check your SPAM folder first, then email firstname.lastname@example.org. We don’t want ANY submission to get missed due to an email error.
The judges are excited to read all your poetry and view all your art—and will spend as much time as necessary to carefully consider your work. Since this is the largest number of submissions we’ve received in several years, it may take a little longer than the original plan of late June/early July. I will keep you posted as to when the judges’ have finalized their choices and acceptance notifications can be sent, so STAY TUNED.
Again, thank you ALL for the support and for the many kind sentiments you’ve shared. You’ve made this first part of the process a true pleasure for me!
Keep Creating, Keep Sharing!
