My Comments in The Summerset Review

Chance of thunderstorms, high 90 degrees. The storms held off for last night's All Star Game in St. Louis. Unfortunately, the National League lost once again.

Some time ago I posted an announcement about Amy Willoughby-Burle's short story, "Out Across the Nowhere," which appeared in the Spring issue of The Summerset Review. I also posted information about The Summerset Review's Fifty-for-Fifty Contest Award. After my posting, I submitted comments about Amy's story.

I was surprised and thrilled to receive an e-mail that I was one of the two readers whose comments were selected for publication on-line. In addition to having my comments published, I received $50, plus a complimentary copy of their wonderful magazine.

The deadline for reader comments on the next issue is September 1 . You can read the guidelines by clicking here.

So, take time to read the poems, stories, or essays of the wonderful contributors in the Summer issue (click on the photo on the left), submit your comments, and you, too, might be a winner.

Good luck!


  1. WOW! Congrats, Donna! That is very exciting!

  2. Thanks, Becky. It is very exciting--and the $50 was nice, too.

  3. Paid for comments? How cool is that? Definitely checking this one out, Donna, and way to go!

  4. Hi Cathy,
    Thanks. It is way cool, plus it's a nice way to encourage other writers by complimenting them on their work. I think The Summerset Review is definitely onto something here.
