I didn't get an email -annoying because it is a very expensive place for some of us to pay for with weak currencies - not in spam either!!! Not impressed. Trish

Me neither. Makes me feel better to know many others haven't yet either. Probably going out in batches.

I'm sorry some of you didn't get the email! I can copy paste it for you! 

Dear Writers,
COVID-19 has quickly disrupted the world in the matter of a few months, and we hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during these strange and uncertain times.  Most everyone has been affected one way or another, but we are reaching out to say that we do not anticipate any changes to our competition schedule or results announcement dates at this time. If anything changes, of course, we will let you know as soon as possible.  In the meantime, feel free to visit our forums to chat with other writers any time you may be feeling a little cooped up by the living, working, and travel restrictions that are a new reality for so many people around the world.  Please stay safe and healthy everyone and keep writing!

I didn't get it either, which is no biggie because I can read it here. Just wondering if I should touch base with them to make sure they have my correct email. It's my first time entering and I wouldn't want any correspondence going astray.

Check your spam. I don't have issues with NYCM, but I've had real e-mail from banks, other publishers, and real people go to the spam filter while actual spam gets through. Sometimes the same address will bounce one email but another one comes through. (The 24-hour Fiction Contest seems prone to that, and Bronzeville Books's auto-reply. I think some may be the number of recipients.)

I never got the first confirmation email when I registered for this contest. I sent an email to touch base the same day and still no word. I was happy to see my name assigned because I truly wasn't sure. I did not get this email either. (Yes, I have checked spam, junk, etc.) Let me know if they respond to you so I can figure out where I went wrong.

Yeah I checked junk. I've gotten the previous emails from the contest though so hopefully it was just an anomaly. I'll just contact them if I don't hear anything on the date that we're supposed to. Thanks!
