This afternoon I mailed your late August bundle. It had to be sent as a "large envelope" because there is so much good stuff inside. It's late because of a family trip to Cleveland, where I stopped in Lakewood at the print shop of Frank Underwood and got an amazing tour and a lesson in running a 1909 linotype machine. Really incredible. I told him I was on a nationwide tour to convince members to get something into the bundle (paid for by your scholarship dollars!) but I don't think I tricked him.
I had a small counting problem and didn't make enough August envelopes, so I had to borrow a few from the past. Please ignore whatever "number of submissions needed" is printed on your envelope, and continue to send 145 copies of your work. Thanks.
Thanks to Ivan and Laurie for once again helping me stuff the bundle, and thanks to everyone who got something into the bundle, to give us all some late summer reading.
