  1. Your Opportunities Roundup, dated the 1st December, gives the deadline as the 15th of December, instead of January. My heart skipped a beat!

    1. oops! Thank you very much for pointing this out Ron – and huge apologies to you and any other writers this has frightened the life out of! This has now been amended.

      Best of luck with your submission!
