Summer Reflections

Deborah Ranchuk

The year has flown by as we predicted it would. The delays from illness in January and February, and the levels of activity here, have been hard to overcome. But I think we are finally winning the battle.

Because of those delays, we have scrapped the Market Notes section of this issue of the CWJ. If the information is not going to be timely, it is of little use. The work we are doing to put together all of the 2003 markets for The Canadian Writers' Contest Calendar will put us well in advance for next year. The August, and October issues will cover the markets from now until then. We will continue to have Market Notes in the CWJ that augment the Contest Calendar listings with information and market opportunities in the US and abroad. We have filled the issue with more articles to help you with your writing.

We'll be at Word On The Street in Toronto the end of September, and hope to see some of you there.

The Short Fiction Contest deadline is September 30, 2002 and the next one is March 31, 2003. It looks like tough competition so far, and the deadline is days away.

I hope your summer was all you had hoped, and wish you every success in the fall.

Keep writing.
