Congratulations to the authors!  It will be such a thrill to see your creations in print.

The submission guidelines told us to leave margin space for notes.  Will we be getting our submissions back with comments from the judges so we can learn what to do better the next time?

Sally has sent through some notes for each of you -I'll forward those on.

Hi Richard,

sorry to be a bother, I know you are busy, I was just wondering if the notes from Sally had been sent out to us?

I just wanted to make sure I did not miss it in my email.

Thank you,
Saleema

Haven't forgotten about sending you the comments - just been a crazy week. It's still there on my list!

Did you ever send out the comments? I've been checking for the email, but haven't seen it yet. Also, do you have the information on when and where the contract will be signed?

Hey, it's me again. I'm still wondering about the notes for my story. Did you ever wind up sending them?

Sally was due to contact the winners but this is what she told me when I asked about your notes last time:

"I wasn't planning on providing notes on the winning entries, because they'll be thoroughly edited (he'll probably have more notes than he wants!) before publication.  "
