*HUSTLE ALERT* January 30th/31st Deadlines!


We already know the holidays are over. To use my Negro Dialect, it’s done been time for you to start thinking about submissions.  But I know if I let you know about deadlines too far in advance, some of y’all will  just forget all about them. (Come on now, be honest).

For those out there who have a creative relationship with time, here are some deadlines that have January 31st postmark deadlines. That would be Sunday. A couple have February 1st deadlines, but let’s just pretend they are due by January 31st, too. Because would it kill you to get something in the mail a day early, and then be at work bright and early Monday morning? It ain’t your birthday next week, is it?

So get yourself down to that post office or set yourself in front of a computer with high speed internet BY SATURDAY MORNING. I say this with so much love.

I’ll see you early next week. And if you can’t be good this weekend, then be good at it.
