The deadline for sending entries in to WV Writers annual writing contest is nearly upon us. Oh, how it looms! It LOOMS!
Fear not, citizens, for while March 15 is indeed the cut-off point for accepting entries... at the cheapest rate possible... WV Writers will continue to accept your entries through the end of March, albeit with a slight adjustment in price. Instead of our usual $8 per entry, come March 16 we're looking at a full $9 per entry due to that pesky $1 late fee we tack on.
You wouldn't believe the number of people who willingly incur that dreaded late fee each year because they don't have their entries together and post-marked before March 15. You're welcome to do this, of course, but I just wanted to warn you in advance.
While I'm mentioning deadlines, let me just alert you to the fact that the low, low, pre-order price of $12 each (or five for $10 each) on the new WV Writers Anthology, Seeking the Swan, is also an endangered species. This lovely tome is also less than a month away from publication and will soon increase to its regular retail price of $16 each. If you'd like to get in on some of this cheap anthology action, I suggest you consult the retail page of our latest newsletter, or pop on over to our online store where you can either purchase them through Pay Pal or by regular snail mail.
Or, if you're a truly daring soul, you can wait and see what sort of nifty Multi-Anthology Super-Package we come up with, wrapping up all five anthologies into a single brick of WV-authored goodness. We'll likely unveil such a creature at the 2008 Conference.
And speaking of which...
While WV Writers has not yet opened for conference pre-registration, that blessed day when we do is also fast approaching. I'm thinking Aprilish looks pretty good on that one. (Keep watching this space and our website for details.) In the meantime, to whet your appetite, you may have a small taste of what's in store for the conference via our 2008 Conference Flyer.
