Yesterday, I posted the following to Facebook:
“So: the DEADLINE for the menstruation anthology Tanis MacDonald, Rosanna Deerchild and I are editing is in TWO DAYS. SUBMIT! Or ASK NICELY FOR AN EXTENSION! But: DO SOMETHING.”
And I proceeded to have conversations with all kinds of writers that I admire over the course of the day.
I’d given five or six extensions by bedtime.
This morning, Rosanna and Tanis and I chatted briefly. They’d both had the same day: “YES you can have an EXTENSION + WHOA that sounds like a good poem/essay/story.”
Given that there are probably lots of people we DON’T know in a similar situation, we’ve agreed to offer the extension more widely.
We’re super excited by all the submissions we’ve gotten so far and all the submissions we’ve been promised.
