You should come, not just for the aforementioned to-be-named cheap booze—though we'd be lying if we said we didn't think it was a major part of the appeal—but for the very good stories (we're pleased with this year's crop), the enthusiastic atmosphere, the copious swag, the drunken attempts at answering trivia questions, and so on and so on.
And hey, if you have a previously unpublished short story of 1,500 words or fewer, why not submit it? "Well, because, I mean—" No. Submit, you will submit.
(Also, if you have already submitted but haven't received confirmation from us, please don't be shy about resubmitting. Email issues, since resolved.)
