Stroll AGM and Anthology Update

We have received a few questions regarding the decision to postpone the 2020 AGM and anthology launch. A new date for this event has not yet been chosen. The Stroll board will be meeting in April to discuss alternate arrangements for the AGM and for ways Stroll members can obtain their copy of the 2020 Stroll Anthology.

We will keep you updated through the newsletter, website and social media as new arrangements have been made.

We thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.

Please note that the Stroll/WGA Edmonton office will be closed indefinitely as we participate in the effort to slow community spread of COVID-19. Staff will be working from home and will be checking email and telephone messages regularly.  We ask for your patience if e-mail inquiries and communication take longer than usual. If you have questions, please contact Ellen at ellen.kartz@writersguild.ab.ca.

DEADLINE EXTENSION for THE FIRST STROLL ANTHOLOGY OF THE DECADE!

Hello Strollers,

First of all, my sincere thanks to all those who submitted their poems to me by the original deadline of January 15, 2020. I sincerely appreciate your compliance with the guidelines.

It’s possible that the frigid temperatures of the last few days have taken a toll on all of us. The general tendency is to burrow under the covers and wait it out! But believe it or not, this seems to have had an impact on the Stroll of Poets Anthology 2020. So, due to low submission numbers (whether for this reason or any other), it has been decided to extend the deadline to midnight on Wednesday, January 22, 2020.

The Board, and I as editor, have made this decision in order to allow as many members as possible to see their work in print. Please take advantage of the opportunity. No further extension will be considered.

Stroll guidelines are found at: https://www.strollofpoets.com/stroll-anthology/.

Looking forward to your submission …

Deborah Lawson
