  1. Colleen–if I may–this seems to be the announcement for submissions to the journal, not a contest. These are very different things. Unless I’m totally misreading this? I think it’s great that you’re encouraging people to submit their work, but good advice when submitting to a journal–people should actually look at the journal first. 🙂 I didn’t see a link: http://www.cattailsjournal.com/currentissue.html
    Hope you don’t mind my two cents here–and maybe that’s all it’s worth. 🙂
