Three-for-one Thursday

Today's weather in St. Peters: Unstable. Chance of thunderstorms; high 69 degrees.

We didn't get the predicted storms last night, so most likely we will today, which I'm calling three-for-one Thursday because I have three bits of information to share.

I'm still struggling to figure out how to link to websites. If you want to check out a site I mention in a post, copy and paste the link in your web browser and try it that way.

First, here are two submission opportunities to check out:

Mid-American Review
MAR is seeking submissions before their next big rush in early January. Submit Poetry to Brad Modlin, fiction to Ashley Kaine, translations to George Looney, creative nonfiction to Karen Kay Craigo, who along with Mike Czyzniejewski, is fellow editor-in-chief.
Mid-American Review
Department of English
Bowling Green State University
Bowling Green OH 43403

Here's their website address


Richard Bausch Short Story Contest
Our Stories Literary Journal's first annual Richard Bausch Short Story Contest is accepting submissions. In addition to the chance of winning prize money and publication, every submission receives a page-by-page review by a member of their staff. Deadline December 31st
For complete details, visit their website

Now, a special announcement for local writers:
Tomorrow night, November 7, St. Charles Community College will host an Open Mic Night on campus from 7:00-9:00 p.m. in the SCC Social Sciences Auditorium. The event features coffee, cookies, and literary refreshment. Practice ahead of time and limit your mic time to seven minutes. SCC 4601 Mid Rivers Mall Drive; Cottleville, MO 636-933-8000. (I've participated in a couple of SCC's open mic nights, and they were fun. Teddy Norris does an excellent job running the event, and the free refreshments are yummy!)


That's all for today. Hope you'll check back on Friday for Happy Hour.


  1. Hi Donna,

    Great Blog. They're kind of hard to get started. I have a couple that I'm trying to update once a month.

    Thanks for these links.

  2. Hi Cher'ley,
