  1. Thank you for providing these lists! They’re really helpful to me. I was going to enter a contest you had listed for last month but didn’t finish in time so I’m going to carry that story over to this month and hopefully send it to the Colorado Review one unless one of these others you’ve listed fit my story better.

    1. No problem! Good luck with whichever contest you decide to enter. 🙂
      I know what you mean, though. I was going to enter another contest and totally missed the deadline. Oops.

Let me know what you think!
