Hello, everyone! We swear we’re not trying to torture all of you lovely folks waiting for your RLGL Round 4 feedback, but between Cynthea’s recent 2016 Oklahoma Book Award win for Bike On, Bear!, her radio appearance this last Monday,an upcoming school visit, and training some new interns on how to give proper belly rubs, Kissy has been extremely busy. Now that things have calmed down a little, Kissy will be digging through your submissions over the next few days. Thank you for your utmost patience. For those of you who have not received your round 4 feedback yet: do NOT submit your manuscript to round 5 until you know Kissy’s verdict. He’ll make sure you get your feedback before round 5 closes!
Round 5 for this year’s Red Light, Green Light contest is OPEN for submissions! New entrants may enter at any time so long as the round is open. It’s going to be a slow round so I’m thanking you in advanced for your patience. Woof!!
To expedite our review process, and given the volume of entries we are receiving, we are reinstating feedback codes to deliver your results. There’s no time to be able to tailor our responses as much as we’d like. But this should still give you a good idea. Check out this page for common reasons why your manuscript may be sent back to start. If you receive a code, you can look it up on this page to find out what went wrong. Thanks for understanding!*
This does not mean that we are done returning ALL results from the previous round. It just means this round is open for new entrants and any existing entrants who have received their results from the previous round.
When we have returned all results, that will be noted in this post. So please don’t ask about your submission until it is clear that all results have been returned. Thank you!
Finally, to help us keep better track of your submission, please submit your work to the right category. Picture books and ER have their own bucket so we can keep track of the # of entrants vying for that prize. Longer works go in the other category so we can do the same for those folks too.
BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING, look at our Rules and Regulations.
Once you’ve got that all figured out, click that submit button at the bottom of this post.
This round will be closing submissions on Thursday, 04/21/16 @ 11:59 CST.
New entrants can enter anytime though, even if you miss a Round.
Anything can happen in this game, so get in when a round is open. Please help us make this even more fun by letting others know what’s going on and inviting them to join in on the competition! #RLGL is the official tag.
Good luck, everyone! WOOF!
