Well Versed Deadline Extended

If you are like me you're always scrambling to meet deadlines, so here's some good news about a deadline that's been extended:

Late last night I received an e-mail informing me that the deadline for the 2013 Well Versed anthology contest has been extended until November 15.

The Columbia Chapter of the Missouri Writers' Guild does a top-notch job soliciting and selecting submissions of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction for their Well Versed anthology.

The deadline has been extended to give writers extra time to submit, especially if they are inspired to work on their manuscripts after they attend The Write Direction Conference in Columbia on November 10. (I'll be speaking at the conference so I sincerely appreciate the extra time!)

Next week I will post information about The Write Direction Conference, whose speakers include William Trowbridge, the Poet Lauerate of Missouri, and Medical Examinator Dr. Eddie Adelstein.

  2. Okay, Donna...So I went to the link, saw I have not missed the original deadline but had merely forgotten it. Thanks for the reminder. I guess I now know what I will be bringing to my critique group this Wednesday...

    1. Hi Sioux,
      The original deadline was Oct 31, so that gives you two extra weeks. And who can't use two extra weeks to polish a manuscript;-)

  5. This is very good news. So many conferences going on that a later deadline is a big help. And let us not forget THIS Saturday is the workshop put on by Saturday Writers in St. Paters!
