Hi all- starting to go through lists again for future deadlines. These days I am checking less frequently so more are open when I check. This is more economical as far as my time goes. I am an individual, not a team, I have a full time job + I am an artist. Apologies to anyone bothered by my posting same day festivals, but I post them as I see them and festivals tell me that they see a surge of entries the day I post. I know some of you will use the information, and some will not. I figure it is up to you.
best of luck to all of you,
