Just to let you know that the last five days have been hectic for me personally. And to add to the pain my Internet can barely download Gmail anymore.
I will try to get selection notices out to everyone, but formatting will have to wait until tomorrow when I can get to somewhere where I have a good connection.
My apologies, this has just been a week filled with hurdles that I have not been able to clear.
PLEASE SEND YOUR SUBMISSIONS BETWEEN THE 10TH AND THE 25TH OF AUGUST!
The September 1 issue will have this format:
SHORT HAIBUN! THE ‘PROSE POEM’ SHOULD BE NO LONGER THAN 50 WORDS (PLUS OR MINUS A FEW I WILL NOT BE HARSH. Two haibun limit.
I am STILL struggling with poor Internet although there is a new provider installing a new system as I type. Also, this month requires two more ‘brief’ hospital trips. I am collecting pictures of my insides for a scrapbook!!! I am stable right now, and still smiling. It has been a wonderful summer for us this year, enjoying visits from friends (socially distanced) and we are both doing well. That said, I will be offline a few times so get your work in early if you can, but no penalty will be assessed to late submissions, as usual.
Peace and good health to you all!!
