If you don't read the newsletter, here's the transcription:
"You spoke, we listened. Thank you, everyone, who responded with ideas for future contest ideas. First up, the topic with the most interest, will be a contest with the theme of poetry/short fiction. Please submit your published work by March 22nd, 2019 EOD to email@example.com. We will choose five of the most creative and powerful poems/stories to be individually featured on the LetterPile and HubPages Facebook pages, in the newsletter, and on our Instagram feed (for shorter poems/fiction only. Longer stories will be a link in our bio.) This will take place throughout five weeks. Let your imagination run wild! We are so excited to see what you do. "
If you are interested, please send your work (URL format) to the email enclosed above. Be sure that your article has been published on HubPages, and not already featured on a third-party site. We want to give exposure to the talented and budding authors of our community.

Too bad. I was thinking of sending you a humdinger and if you liked it and I was sufficiently enticed, I would have transferred it here. Btw, I've seen the traffic chart for the last 12 months of letterpile's traffic; what the heck happened and what do you think caused it?

Interesting! I like challenges But, the dateline is near, in about 12 days Not sure if I can catch-up :p Because it must be something new right? I thought, to just submit one of my writing, either poem/story that I posted on Mirakee, but seems I can't huh Well, I hope I'll figure out new idea later Btw, thanks for the info ~
I don't usually do poetry ( when I do it is doggeral or nonsense), but when I saw this notice I decided to get out my butterfly net and capture a few verses that had been swishing around in my brain about being sensible. There I did it. I'm in just for the heck of it.
I sent my poem to the email address they offered. The email they sent said, "Only unpublished work" so I thought that meant "Only unpublished work". Who would have thought "Only unpublished work" really meant "only published on hubpages". Sounds like I'm out since I sent my "unpublished poem" instead of the "published only on hubpages" poem.
All of the announcements for this content have stressed the "published only on HubPages" thing. So, unfortunately, if you did not send a link to a currently featured HubPages article, then it will not be included in the judging. There will be more contests to come, though, so don't stress!
I've just been watching too many fiction shows where computers are remotely set on fire or exploded. One show even explained how it was done. As for real world; if not already, I imagine it's only a matter of time.
I have a hub with 3 poems I put together on hubpages a long time ago...They were featured for a while but I might have unpublished them or they didn't get enough traffic ... not sure but can I submit them. I also have a single poem separate from those three that I have published on Hubpages, can I submit that also?
Samantha, There is a bug with the contest email. When I try email you my submission I get a bounce saying "Your email to group firstname.lastname@example.org was rejected due to spam classification." However, I had no problem emailing Robin at her HubPages email. She reported this to the team to look into it. In the meantime, how can I submit if they don't fix it by the deadline?
Oh good, I’m glad she forwarded it to you. It’s strange that my emails get through to her and not to you, since both are on the same server. But at least you have the info on my submissions. Thanks Samantha.
The window for submissions is officially CLOSED (and has been), as of Friday, March 22nd at 6 p.m. PST. Please reference the initial forum post/newsletter for details. One winner will be announced every week, starting next week.
Please reference last week's newsletter update for clarification:
"We hope you threw your words in the ring, because the poetry/short fiction submission window has closed. We have a highly opinionated (kidding...) team of literature lovers reviewing them now. Winners will be announced via the newsletter and forum on Wednesday, April 3rd. Features on our social media sites begin on the same Wednesday. Winners will continue being introduced during the weeks that follow, so that everyone may have their fifteen minutes of fame."
