    When will you guys announce the results, so we could know that our story won’t be published would try our luck somewhere else . . . I’m asking this coz you guys wrote only winners will be notified so you don’t expect us to wait for two years to know!!

    1. we shall announce the results when we are able, if you’d like to submit it to more people and they can confirm that they’ll take your work before we can, then naturally there’s nothing we can do about it.

    I sent my entry on the 27th of Jan but never received any confirmation- should I worry that you haven’t got it?

    1. If you’d like to pay for me to hire a secretary to write people letters of confirmation, I’d be glad to fish out your story and send you such a note?

      1. Fauzia H Says:

        Or you could set up an auto-reply on your email account so that people know they typed the pretty complicated address right and that their email didn’t get bounced or sent into spam folder.
