Suggestions on how to get the word out?

While my call for submissions has been more successful than I thought possible, there is plenty of room for growth. I have submitted my call for submissions to all the mail art and writers forums I could find, which was not many and I have utilized blogger, facebook and twitter.
Any thoughts on how to continue to spread the word? Open forums that are seeking calls for submissions would be very helpful and if you would share one of my posts that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advanced and please send our submission to:

Please don't quote me
112 N Hawkins Ave
Akron, Oh

Just remember the more the word gets out, the more successful this project will be.
