PoOP 2017 – Call for submissions

To the POmpous and OPinionated:

You POOPin this year?

If you’re getting one of these for the first time, POOP is our annual exercise in self-importance wherein we compile “Best Of 2017′ lists, to be published in a quaint ol’ print edition as well as online. This year will be our 31st annual exercise in swillification.

A refresher about the rules and deadlines is in order:

Limit yourself to what would be 2 sides of 8×11 paper. Leave a slight margin so your swill does not get lost in the binding of the hard copy.

Any layout format that works for you works.

Send me a copy. preferably as a WORD DOC which does enables me to make an occasional change to the formatting or to writing errors (or Springstein/Wiclo-like spelling).

Also send a copy to Mark Zip for digiPOOP at zipszig@hvc.rr.com,

POOP costs a little bit of money. Even though I get the printing/binding done at a discounted price, it still costs buckage. In POOPs past I’ve left it to POOPsters to donate whatever people see fit to donate. I now encourage a $5 minimum. I do not make ANY money on this enterprise. I am trying not to lose too much though, and a donation of at least $5 will help keep POOP flush, so to speak. I accept checks/cash sent to the address below or PayPal payments sent to my email address.

I no longer need a hard copy snail mailed.

Feel free to forward this to anyone you think might be interested in POOPing. You can refer him/her to pooplist.net (the right-hand column for examples of POOPs past. Increasing estrogen presence is particularly encouraged.

The deadine this year will be Friday, January 26th. A deadline means a deadline. Don’t get me angry.

Look forward to hearing from you.
