Information on Entries That You Might Not Know
We are coming to the end of the first quarter of 2008.
There are a few bits of information that I wanted to impart to you all about entering the contest.
1) No need to send your manuscripts or art by "special mail". Since we are a PO box many of the mail services do not deliver to PO Box addresses.
2) We absolutely do not accept "registered mail".
3) You do not have to send in a huge envelope with stamps to return your entire manuscript. It costs you twice the amount to enter when you do that. It IS good to send in an envelope for the notification of results with enough postage (41 cents now) but I hear the rates are going up again so I don't know what that will be. Check with your local post office as the rates go up soon.
4) We notify you by e-mail that we have received your entry. How I do this is send the message to the contest with about 20 of you cc:ed on it as I can't possibly send a single e-mail to each of you. I usually write in the heading "Your Writers (or Illustrators) Entry for the ___ Quarter. So do look for that amoungst all the messages you may get. I know that I get tons of "spam" messages a day and I assume you do too. But do look out for that heading so you don't shred mine by accident.
Those are the key points I wanted to go over with you. If you personally have any other questions do let me know at email@example.com.
