Hello, it’s time to begin readying for The Writer’s Grapevine Holiday Extravaganza.
The following guidelines are new so make certain you read them carefully before submitting.
The Holiday Extravaganza will focus on the theme of the holidays you celebrate and the weather season you happen to be in.
I’d like to ask you please not submit work which has previously appeared in the Writer’s Grapevine. I don’t mind whether it’s been published in other magazines or onto blogs, but I don’t want any repeats this year.
I’d like to also ask you make absolutely certain your work is ready to be placed into the magazine upon receipt.
Remember this is a Holiday Extravaganza. Be Festive!
Guest contributions are wanted and welcome. Please share this with your groups and contacts.

The submission deadline is November 15TH. Late submissions may be considered for the Sips of Wine from the Grapevine posted onto my blog, but they will not go into the magazine if they come to me after the 15TH of November.
