Mother Nature can be quite fickle. Michigan went from 80-90+ days and 60-70+ nights back into 60-70 days and 40+ nights. Got to love it. At least we finally got a little rain to help out our parched land. Our vegetable garden was looking pretty rough for a while, but it’s booming now. How’s the weather in your area? 100+ with high humidity? Grab a cold drink and pick up your pen…or laptop and check out these submission opportunities featured on NewPages this week.
Want to enhance your craft? Virtually since the kids are out of school? We have you covered there, too.
