  1. Thanks so much. I'm trying to make it as broad-based as possible and seeking voices as I've said, from the home to the workplace as well as from the past and the present. So please go to it!

  2. Twittered, facebooked and sent to my networks including QWC. :) A great idea for what will be a terrific collection! :) Please do link up on FB, Linkedin etc.

  3. Be glad to post this in a FundsforWriters newsletter if I can learn how much it pays. Thanks.

  4. Thanks, Hope. The payment is inline with industry standard.

  5. Hi - I wonder if you would consider a late entry.

    The ad on Australian Poetry (http://www.australianpoetry.org/blog/2011/10/01/womens-work-seeks-contributors/) made it appear (to me, anyway) that contributions were accepted *from* 1 Oct, not until. So that was what I put in my calendar!
