FRIDAY NOTES & NEWS: Contributor News & Summer Events

This is our last week of posts before our annual Summer break, which starts this year on Monday, June 28. During the summer break, submissions will remain open — but don’t expect an answer until the Fall. As well, the critique service remains open, but again there might be some fulfillment delays. We’ll be back on Tuesday, September 7 with a new post and newsletter.
