Thank you to everyone who submitted to the 10 Year Anniversary (print) Anthology project. We received some amazing stories… which are all now in the hands of our talented editorial board members for final decisions. If all goes well, we should have our selections made, and authors notified by the end of August.
Several of you have said (somewhat tongue in cheek) things like “I don’t know if I can wait that long!” and all I can say is that with an all-volunteer staff, we will do the best we can. AND if it makes you feel any better, I still have an application pending to work as a Teaching Assistant in the English Department at UNM…. I’m pretty sure I didn’t get the job, since I graduated with my MFA two years ago. ANYWAY… I won’t do that to you. I will let you know if your piece has been accepted, or if we have opted to pass… no matter how difficult it will be, and to those of you I know and love it will be difficult. Admittedly this is why I chose to gather a board, I would have published you all! (we would have ended up with a three volume set of DimeStories)
REMINDER: The Orange County Chapter is now gathering in Costa Mesa.
Sign-ups begin at 5:00 pm, and readings at 5:30 pm
