    Cannot locate completre guidelines for your River Styx Schlafly Beer Micro-Fiction Contest. Can you help? I would like to enter (500 w0rds maximum). My thanks! Ned Kyle.

  2. Hi Sean. I find your web very interesting and would like to host you this September in my
    own web for writers and artists, http://www.sculptingtheheart.com.

    Come visit. If you have any objections, let
    me know. Both of us would get new traffic
    if you mentioned my web somewhere also.

    Thanks. Joyce White

  3. Hey Sean,

    Just read “Briefly” over on Metazen. Very, very nice. So nice. Been a while since I’ve read someone interesting.

    Best of luck
