September is a very tricky time of year for us mods. We start new schools, find problems with moving house, or even get hit by hurricanes! As such, we’re all very busy people and we’re finding it a little hard to handle the queue. We’ve suffered some losses within our team and we’re hoping to announce the arrival of some new mods very soon. However, we’d like to announce a three-week closure of the queue, just so that we can sort ourselves out. When we reopen, we’ll also hopefully be launching some brand-new ideas that we’ve been working on, including a new layout to help make the ads blend into the page slightly more. The forums will stay open throughout the time and our autumn term classes will still take place. The queue will therefore be closing on Wednesday at midnight EST and will remain closed to new fictions for three weeks. Those fictions that are currently in the queue will be modded during that time.
However, I am sorry to announce that we’ll also be postponing our QSQs. We usually announce the winners at Halloween but due to time constraints we have resolved that it would be more suitable to come to a decision closer to Christmas. We thank you for all of your nominations and they will be taken forward for that time.
Thank you for your kind understanding and we will enjoy seeing your writing again very soon.The queue is now closed. We will reopen submissions October 8.
