      1. I have a finalized version ready to send off, but could not figure out from the website how to send it. The cover letter description refers to sending it by e-mail, but I could not find an e-mail address. Am I looking in the wrong place?


      2. After a more careful review, I found the link to the slonightwriter’s contact list. If you have any influence, you might mention that on their cover letter info, they might repeat the e-mail address, for those who are part of the club.
