But, if you're a St. Louis Cardinals fan like me you're lamenting the fact that the Red Birds lost the World Series to the Boston Red Sox. At least it took six games this time and not four!
A good way to get over disappointment is by writing, which brings me to the good news.
This morning I received an e-mail from Linda Fisher, managing editor of Well Versed, that the submission deadline has been extended.
Here is an excerpt from her e-mail:
"I’m extending the deadline to November 10. Electronic copies must be received before midnight on the 10th. You do not have to postmark your hard copies until November 12. I’m not sure if the post office is open on the 11th.Visit our website for complete guidelines and prizes. Please read through the guidelines carefully. A section has been added to help you format your manuscript. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may submit five poems and three prose pieces. We do require both electronic and paper versions of each submission.
As always, CCMWG members pay no entry fee. Nonmembers pay a small fee, or can join CCMWG for $15 and pay no fee. Each edition of Well Versed is filled with outstanding prose and poetry, and we look forward to having your pieces considered for the 2014 edition.My sincere appreciation to all who met the original deadline! To keep Well Versed on track, this is the only extension. Entries received after the extended deadline will not be used."
Good luck if you enter! Here's hoping one of you wins big!
