  1. As a member of Georgia Writers, Inc., and recipient of “Poets & Writers” mag, I am responding to your ad in the Nov/Dec 2009 issue (page 182). I have a short story (1,862 words) about my grandfather’s experience at St. Joseph’s hospital in Atlanta, in the late summer of 1987. I was with him and kept copious notes of everything that happened to him and everything he said. In its original form, my story won first place in short fiction at the Clayton Arts Festival (Clayton College & State University) for 1988. It has not been published. My cousin who is a nurse suggested I send it to a medical magazine, but I didn’t know which one until I saw your ad. Could I please have guidelines for submission and an address if you’d like to see it? Thanks for your time. Yours, Jean Melilli

  2. Jean, this blog is merely a clearinghouse for calls for submissions from a variety of publishing venues. You will need to contact the journal’s editors via its Web site.
