Passionate Plume and Stroke of Midnight Changes

Hello Passionate Inkers!

Some of you may be wondering why the Passionate Plume and Stroke of Midnight contests haven't been announced.  I posted on the PI forum a few months ago that the time lines for the contests have changed.  Here is just a reminder of how the contests will work for the foreseeable future.

The 7th Annual Passionate Plume and Stroke of Midnight contests will open for entries in mid-March. The first round of judging will begin in May. The finalists will be announced in June right before the final round judges receive their entries.  The final results will be announced at the Passionate Ink party at the RWA National conference in July.

I am happy to announce that our very own Harlie Williams has agreed to co-ordinate the Stroke of Midnight contest this year.  Thanks for stepping up Harlie!

If you have any questions, please contact me, or Harlie, at:

Vice President and Passionate Plume Contest Coordinator
