Thank you for your patience and thank you to everyone who submitted entries.
The judges, editors and owner of Proper Publishing, Mrs. Lewis, have all been shocked at the quality of work sent in and although we would love to include every piece, we must adhere to the strictest of content guidelines, which we feel is the best way to honor Minnie Hatfield's life.
If your work did not get accepted, please understand it is NOT a reflection of your writing abilities. We encourage you to submit different work to Minnie's Diary when it is time for Issue II. Every piece we read was truly stunning.
