        Reminder: Swan Scythe Press's 2010 Poetry Chapbook Contest is still open for submissions until June 1, 2010 (must be postmarked before or on that date) -- there was some initial confusion about the deadline; some announcements said the deadline was May 15, 2010, others did correctly say June 1, 2010. The deadline is June 1, 2010! Submission fee: $15.
        For complete details see www.swanscythe.com
