Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 36

In truth, she is your gatekeeper you must get past to get to Dave, the coordinating judge. She looks at the first page or two to see if you write professionally and have created a story worthy of the anthology and worth Dave's time to read. Fail to impress Kary, and your story is rejected. Kary has...

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 36

Also, for those of us twitching together: someone reported a rejection for q4 on 11/8 on submission grinder so, brace yourselves "I just looked at Grinder. It appears that Q4 results for last year came on 14 and 15 November. I'm going to speculate that winners will be getting a call about now,...

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 36

Wow. Great information. Thanks everyone!!!! I hereby declare abandonment of my previous story ideas for q4 for some new ideas with an "authoritative voice" ... and a few other enhancements. On another note, I can see the value in reading slush. I've only had an opportunity to do this once...

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 36

Whoa, it must be cool to hear that your story was one that Kary remembered and passed to Dave! Good for you!!! Thanks for sharing your experience with reading as well. Those are some great points to know and I'm happy to have heard (read?) your TED talk! I can see what you mean about not minding a ...

Re: Discussion: Q4 Volume 36

That's an amazing story Wulf! I've been thinking a lot lately about Kary English and her part on the contest. To date, I've only received HMs.... So, I'm not sure how much (if any) of my story is ready by Dave. So, what can you tell us about Kary? Personally, I'd like to write such a story that Kar...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

I always appreciated getting details from others who have heard from Dave in person at different events, so it is in that spirit that I share this gleaned tidbit with you lovely forum folks. I hope this isn't giving too much away, but I don't think it is... Today in class Dave mentioned he's got th...

Re: Jibber Jabber - Q4 - Volume 34

So,

This is my first time entering since 2014. In general, when do rejections start rolling out so I can start sweating?
