Song of the Day: Merry Christmas Darling by The Glee Cast

   Hello all! How was everyone's Christmas? I had one of the best Christmases I've ever had. I got all that I wanted and I'm not talking about just the gifts. I also ate A LOT! I don't think I've ever eaten that much food...EVER! My family is Trinidadian and there was a lot of them that came from out of town so the house was well stocked. Not to mention my mother and aunt love to bake! I will be in serious gym mode this week.

   Today is the last set of opportunities for 2011! I'm excited for 2012, are you? It would be a good idea to get some submissions in before the new year is here but I know how busy the holidays can be. Maybe you could find some time and plan your submissions for January? It's a new year and a wonderful opportunity to start getting your work out there. Submit, submit, submit!

1. Luna Station Quarterly

Currently open to submissions of speculative fiction stories written by women. Stories can be 500-5,000 words in length. Deadline for publication on March 1, 2012 is February 15, 2012.

You always give such a great roundup--thanks! One of my New Years resolutions will be to try and submit more short stories. :)

Glad you had a great holiday! I ate too much, but then again that's what those stretchy pants are for. Just wrapped up a story collection for publication, so I'd like to spend more time in the New Year submitting single stories again...this list looks like a good start. Thanks!
