Contest Update

The Canadian Travel Stories contest is closed now. We had dozens of entries. Not hundreds. I’m not sure what I expected. But it was work enough. I was the sorter. For every story I got there was a notice that I’d won a lottery! Half way through I realized I should send thank you confirmations, because if I was entering I’d want one. So I had to email everybody who entered and I couldn’t get the tick box BCC thing happening at first so they were individual. If we’d have had hundreds- yikes!- so thanks for not sending your stories those who didn’t. If I didn’t send you a confirmation email, please forgive me. I mean well. And I am thankful.

The judges have the stories now. They are a surly lot. I’ve locked them in Alice Munro’s basement. Alice is sending the maid down with snacks every three hours. When the white smoke rises above Canadian Literature, we’ll have a winner and a second place and a third. Stay tuned.
