about updates… and some updates

I am currently updating my blog and wanted to point out that I only post (or list by month) festivals that are currently open for submissions- unless I indicate on the posting when they will open (please respect this). Most festivals open their call for submissions one or two months ahead. Usually the furthest out any festival will announce a call is 6 months. With deadlines four months or more away, the thinner the postings.

I am starting to post festivals open in October and November now. More will be added as the festivals get closer.

Please mention noentryfeefestivals.com if you submit to a festival from my page. Also, if you know of a festival (or organize a festival) I should add, please use the submission page.

best of luck,

    1. Hi there! BTW, I only list deadlines on my site. I can change the deadline for the Festival to November 29th, but on your website, it states that submissions are currently closed! Let me know if you really want to change it, and I will.
