Winter Break Reminder

Just a reminder that our online submission manager will be temporarily closed to new submissions during winter break. This is to give us a chance to catch up on the backlog. New work can be submitted through today until about 9pm (central time). During the break, current submitters will be able to access their accounts and snail mail submissions will still be accepted. The submission manager will reopen on January 16.

Have a great holiday!
