For Ladies in distress, or: offering an extension


* * *

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.

So: the new deadline for submissions is October 31. 

We’re super excited by all the submissions we’ve gotten so far and all the submissions we’ve been promised.
