  1. Stone Carver Cat here. So I do have a series called ” genetic memories” that feature Meso American themed carvings. Would this be an appropriate submittal? Will links to our websites be possible?

  2. I’m trying to submit something but an error is stating that the file is too large, it’s only 1 photograph. Help…

  3. I had trouble submitting a poem, so I don’t know if it actually got uploaded. Do you get a notification is the file was received? I’ll try again though…

  4. Awesome. We’re past the deadline, but I’ll keep a look out for future calls for submission. I’m a librarian in a tiny town NC, and I work with a lot of talented Xicanx teens. I feel like their stories are often overlooked, navigating life in the middle of the woods with folks who have seldom met anyone whose great grandparents didn’t grow up in town and are still trying to pass laws to defy integration.
