We have been sort of lacking in approving submissions, so if your submission has not appeared in the group, please re-submit it and it will be approved starting tomorrow. All of the submissions have been approved that have been sitting in the group messages, all 37 of them. So, the inbox is all clear and ready to go with your submissions. Thank you for your understanding!
Also, we haven't held a contest since May, so let's kick off the New Year with one! The contest is going to be held from now, January 5th, 2013, until January 25th, 2013 at 11 PM EST. Please, no more than 2 entries per person, and please submit your entries to the "Contest Entries" folder. Please, make sure that these are one shots or single chapters only. Thank you! The prompts are as followed:
Prompt 1: Ellis Island in New York Harbor opened. Over 20 million new arrivals to America were processed until its closing in 1954
Prompt 2: The world's first underground railway service opened in London, the Metropolitan line between Paddington and Farringdon.
Prompt 3: In Londonderry, Northern Ireland, 13 Roman Catholics were killed by British troops during a banned civil rights march. The event became known as Bloody Sunday.
Good luck, and happy writing!
