I plan on keeping on the ball and submitting to as many open-call writing contests as possible. Having missed the Rattle chapbook contest isn’t a setback. The deadline was missed due to a technical issue with my home pc, which has since been corrected.
I updated my Spoken Word Slam Poetry chapbook to not include any personal identifiable information as listed in the submission guidelines. This seems to be a standard with contest submissions in order to keep the judgement fair honest and blind?
