Fresh Designs Crochet: Tips for Submitters (deadlines)

Posted on by MK Carroll

DEADLINES: the sooner you can get your submission in, the better. For the first call for submissions for Fresh Designs Crochet, more than half of the submissions that came in up to about a week before the deadline generated emails from me either to correct errors (like typos in an URL), to inquire whether Yarn X would be suitable, or to say ‘really like your hat design you’ve got on Ravelry, do you have more design ideas in that direction?’ Waiting until the last minute can also mean missing the deadline because of a technical difficulty. Not fun.

Deadlines for this call for submissions:

  • Submission date deadline: 02 September 2011, Friday, 8:00 pm, Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time: Honolulu.

  • Not sure when that is? The World Clock Time Zone Converter can show you what that will be in your time zone.

  • An email confirming that your submission(s) are/have been received for consideration will be sent within 5 working days of your submission. If that form letter does not appear in your inbox within that time, please check your junk/spam mail folder. If it's not there, please email me at mk [at] cooperativepress [dot] com.

  • Acceptance notification deadline: 09 September 2011, Friday. That means final decisions will be made by Friday and you will be sent an email letting you know if your submission has been accepted or not. If you do not receive an email by 11 September 2011, Sunday, please reply to the submission confirmation email and let me know.

  • Finished samples and pattern deadline: 20 January 2012, Friday. Finished project to be received by Cooperative Press in Lakewood, Ohio, USA. Finished written pattern submissions to be made via email or online form submission.
