Inklings Members Submissions

Happy New Years Inklings!

In my last email, I shared our decision to cancel the 12/17 meeting. The plan changed because Inklings members did not have their anthology submissions ready. After speaking with Inklings members, it was decided member submissions would be emailed to other members by 12/18.


If you have not yet done this...


Please email or share your submission with each other before school resumes on 1/5.
Don't forget to share a copy with me.


Please review the following dates and advise if you see any conflict.


See you soon!

Mrs. Bullard
