Woke up to September. Oh man, so much to get done. But going to note a couple of things here.
First, Leah Bobet and I are conducting a grant writing workshop, “Writing Effective Arts Grants,” on September 7th, from 1 to 3 pm at Bakka Phoenix Books. Tickets are $10, seating is limited, and all attendees will receive a 10% discount coupon for purchases made same day at Bakka.
Leah and I have a fair bit of experience on this point between us, so it’s definitely worth your while to come out to this if you can. (And you can find slightly more information on the event page I’ve linked to.)
The other thing I need to note is that, yes, This Patchwork Flesh is now closed to submissions. And I still have a lot of those to read through. Will be doing some of that today. (Work is what long weekends are for, right?) And sending out rejections and acceptances over the course of the month. Some very good stuff in that pile, and I’ve yet to see the whole of it, so looking forward to digging in.
Thanks immensely to all those of you who sent your stories. I saw a few people rushing to get stuff in just under the wire, and no worries all round. I’m considering everything that came in to the submissions address :)
Now I really need to get back to finishing that long delayed review of Jeff VanderMeer’s Acceptance, so I can hopefully post that sometime today.
And then there’s only the crushing pile of things waiting in queue to get done after that. So, you know, nothing to worry about, right? :D
