    Hi Roxie: When do we find out about the winners?

    And I can’t find the rules, is it okay for the story to be submitted elsewhere before the results are announced?

      Hey Paulette! Great questions…the major thing to point out, the subs closed July 31…did you submit to them before the deadline???

    Oh, fun! Too bad I don’t have any animal shorts or poems.😦

    Thanks for sharing our anthology Roxie! The animal rescue is such a wonderful one… they help families in need with food and medical in an effort to keep animals in their original homes along with rescueing them from shelters to foster and give them more time. I certainly appreciate your sharing this!

          thanks miss. i knew it had to be there, but i wasn’t seeing it.

          • July 25, 2012 2:35 pm

            no prob…glad to help, and let me know when your sub gets accepted😉

            • July 25, 2012 2:42 pm

              after having read their guidelines, I think the story i had considered submitting probably does not fit what they want. although the short story does involve a dog rescue, it is not the main focus of the story. i’m sure they’ll have others in which the rescue part is more central to the story.

            • July 25, 2012 3:06 pm

              is there a way to eclipse the other parts of the story, making it a shorter version to submit?

            • July 25, 2012 3:44 pm

              i doubt it because it is designed so that you don’t even know it’s about a dog until the last word of the story. i know you’re a very busy woman, but feel free to read it. on my blog, under “shorts” and called “boy.”

            • July 25, 2012 7:19 pm

              I’ll read it as soon as I get a chance, Rich…sounds good!
              Hey, a heads-up: if you’ve got your work on your blog, it is considered ‘published’ and venues will not accept it. you may want to remove it from the blog if you’d like to publish it somewhere…

            • July 25, 2012 7:21 pm

              someone really smart told me the same thing yesterday. so you and that smart person are now double smarts. thanks.

              hey, glad to be in good company, LOL!:)

      thank you, Claire! And if inspiration hits you, I hope you submit to this venue, they’re a great cause!:)
