    Angela,

    Thank you for these suggestions for publication. I find writing “prompts” with these ideas. Even if my work isn’t published, I have that writer’s JOY in a purposeful playing with the words.

    You’re welcome! You are a true artist when you find joy in the creation. Good luck. Angie

    Usually it is 50 – 90 days after the deadline before you know. Sometimes even longer! Did you look at the website to see if they posted an announcement date? You must have sent something in!? I hope you win. I’m sure they will notify you if you do, but they may not even send you a note if they don’t. (Which I think is tacky, but that’s how they do it!)
