September 15. That's when you can no longer submit your work for the 'zine. Why? Keep reading.
September 30. That's the date when all polls on pieces (from December 6, 2007 onwards) close.
The interim two weeks give our members enough time to comb through pieces and vote for whether they think the selected should be among those who represent the site for the next issue. We've chopped down our issues from three to two (from quarterly, to biannually) and increased the editing period.
Whereas previously, our e-mentors and associated writers only had a month to shape up the material, now they have two. More time, more chances of spotting mistakes and less reason for me to cut whole pieces out of the running, before going to publication.
See? This way it works out for everyone!
If you're interested in having your work considered for inclusion, and you're not a member, register and start putting stuff up. You only have till September 15, after all! And then September 30, all polls close.
