- Submissions are TODAY! Submission guidelines are HERE. (Note: the online form is VERY COOL and easy to use. If you choose not to use it, make sure you follow the email submission guidelines to the letter.)
- Your SCREEN NAME is simply whatever name you use when you leave comments on this blog. It's not any kind of secret handshake thing, and you don't have to have a Blogger account or reveal your blood type or anything complicated. I promise.
- Note that "2 alternates" will be chosen. This means that, after the 50 entries are received, 2 more will be included and marked "alternate." This is in case I have to redact any of the other entries prior to the opening of the contest on Wednesday. (If we don't get 50 entries, no alternates are chosen.)
- The entries will post on Wednesday morning. Critiquing may begin immediately.
- All entrants are requested to critique a minimum of 5 other entries. (Yes. My awesome database gives me lists of comments by screen name. It's very KGB. Or Santa Claus.)
- The Secret Agent will show up at any time over the next 5 days to leave critique on each entry.
- Winners--and the Secret Agent's identity--will be announced next Monday.
That's about it! If you're new and you have any questions, today's your day to ask them in the comment box.
