  1. Hello, I recently submitted an entry for the A Midsummer Tale Contest, but I received no confirmation that the entry was received. I looked over the email again and there is a hyphen on the link to my email. I wonder if that is the problem or that is simply the way of the contest?

    • Hi John. No confirmations are sent. If you’re concerned that your entry was not received, you can resend.

  3. I have a list of works I cited in the piece I wrote for the 2014 A Midsummer Tale Contest. How should I handle that list? Is it considered part of the story (and included in word count)? Or do I simply paste it into the e-mail along with the story? Or something completely different?
    Thanks!

    • Well, first I’d consider whether you really need the list. The type of stories (cnf/fiction) that we’re looking for don’t typically include lists of works cited. (Here are all the past winners.)

      If there is something you think needs clarification you can put it in a footnote after the story. In most cases, though, in-text references are sufficient.
