I hadn't given any consideration to the numbers involved. Frankly, seeing that the Amazon-affiliated write-for-free publication has so many more readers than the paying publications does not improve my opinion of that contest.

(I'll probably send in the obit poem I've written, and I would certainly try to get ink once if I never had, to have that feather in my cap, though the Bezos connection makes the feather less attractive.)

Ann, I sent you a private message on Facebook. As I understand it, the administrators prefer us not to invite new members but to send them the link so they can "join" on their own. Some technical reason that I don't understand.

Thanks, Rogerbob. Got it. I've asked to join and answered the questions. We shall see.

Updated to say: They Let Me In. I just participated in the initiation ceremony.

Can I ask? Where are these competitions posted?

Also trying to get back into the Style Invitational. Mr. Bezoz, tear down that pay-wall.

The Spectator (weekly) and The Oldie (monthly) competitions are found in "Deep Drills", Ed.

You'll need the password, which I'll PM to you right now.

Thanks, Jayne

Got it.

I think I will test the waters with my left small toe, which I will then shake all about.
