We're still growing, and right now that means taking a step back to strategize. If you've submitted work and not yet gotten a response, please bear with us. We're working hard to get back to you. We completely understand if you feel like you've waited too long and want to withdraw your submission. However, we do allow simultaneous submissions, so if you want to let it ride, we will get back to you as soon as we reorganize.
Proceed at own risk means, we want you to proceed, continue submitting. Just know that it may take a bit longer to get through.
Check back often and stick with us. Like us on Facebook and you'll be updated when we get things rolling again.

We really appreciate all the donations, both big and small. Due to one very generous, recent donation, we now have the money to file with the IRS to become a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. This means all of your donations will become tax deductable.
Of course, future donations will still be accepted, and the money will go to pay for subscriptions for high school students.
Thank you all very much.
