Thanks to those who have inquired about their submissions in recent weeks. We are almost ready to send finalists to judges; once we do that, we will let all prize entrants know their status. We appreciate your patience as we conclude our prize reading. As we make our final editorial decisions, we will contact writers in the next few weeks to let you know one way or the other. For those who have not entered the Dogwood Literary Prize, review of your manuscripts will be concluded by the end of January and we will let you know your manuscript’s status by then.
We wish all a peaceful holiday season and a few extra hours as the year closes to write and to read.
