The entry instructions in the WM comps still say that winners will be advised within 2 months of closing date and other entries can be submitted after that time. I have just entered the Open poetry comp and the entry receipt says 3 months. It does make a difference, as I will often resub things quite quickly after they become 'available' again. Has anyone else queried this with WM? If not, I will flag for attention.
