Songwriting Contest Questions: e-mail Tom Marshall

The contest will open on February 15, 2015. All entries must be postmarked by April 30, 2015.

Please do not send entries overnight, express or certified mail! This impedes the process, and is not necessary as postmarks are used exclusively as far as timeliness of receipt of an entry.
