  1. I expect this is not an acceptable means to contact PRISM, but there is no contact info on the website. On Sept. 17, I submitted a hard copy of my story “Blame” and have been unable to track its progress because it does not appear on Submittable, which leads me to wonder if it was received. Thank-you for passing on my question to the appropriate person.

    • P.S. Since you found it difficult to find our email addresses, I am thinking I will go ahead and try to make it a little easier on our readers and submitters to contact us, by adding a Contact page to our top menu. I’m not sure how long it will take me or how quickly you’ll get the message above, but look for that too!
