    Dear HLG,
    This message is to tell you that I clicked on the hlg@gmail address in red type on this webpage to submit a poem. The Outlook Wizard required me to put my email password, which I will not do. But I still want to make a submission. Question: Will a Word doc attached to a regular email be acceptable to you? If not, please instruct me how to proceed?
    Thanks, Bill Greenwood

      Dear Mr. Greenwood,

      Instead of clicking on the link, try cutting and pasting it into your email program. Or if that doesn’t work, just type it into the address box. Sorry it took me so long to respond. You might also try to contact the HLG at this address: http://www.hbglitguild.org/.
