July 4th

Celebrate Independence HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY to all who are celebrating today. Even if this isn’t a national holiday in your country, I hope you find a moment to celebrate your personal independence, and all the qualities that make you an amazing individual.

Before I head out for celebration with loved ones, here’s an update on GHC happenings…

FICTION COMPETITION. Thank you to all the early birds who have entered already — it’s exciting to see so much interest in the competition! Donations are continuing to roll in (I’ll post updates to the prize round-up soon) and the judges have received info about how to access the entries for review.  So all is trotting along at a smooth pace! One thing to note: I’ve adjusted the age groups to be 12 and younger (preteen) and 13-17 (teen). This made more sense and many of you agreed it’s more balanced. Thanks for the feedback!

GENERAL SUBMISSIONS. Several of you have asked when guest author submissions will re-open. To clarify, general submissions will remain closed while the competition is underway, and if anything changes it will be announced here. Your interest is truly appreciated!

JUNIOR BLOGGERS. Most of the Junior Bloggers are busy working on their stories, but some girls are still finding time to contribute blogs, poetry, and fiction to keep us entertained, informed and inspired during the competition. Yee haw! You’ll notice the JB roster has gotten smaller as inactive authors have been ‘retired’. Their contributions will always be appreciated and available in the Junior Blogger Archives.

That’s all the news for now. Have a fun and safe holiday, and thanks for reading!
