Okay, so many of you probably subscribe to the Writer’s Digest newsletter – but just in case there’s someone out there that doesn’t, check this out

http://www.writersdigest.com/contests/annual/74th/

I’m curious has anyone entered before? Or plans to enter it?

Ok, I'm ready.

What should I enter?

Poetry, non rhyming, but which poem(s)?

Short Story, mainstream, with the Middle of the Night story. Or is it inspirational? or personal essay?

I suppose I could turn my romance noir first chapter into a short story. Then I could enter it as well.

hmmmm

:)

I've never entered this competition before, but I do have an entry this year.

Tasha,

Thanks for the reminder. I did see it in my newsletter where they stated the deadline was May 16th. So I forgot about entering until I got a new e-mail stating the contest extended the deadline until June 1st.

If only I could pull something together I thought was worthy, I'd definitely enter. It sounds like a wonderful contest.

Good luck to everyone who submits their work!

What are your plans, Tasha?

Send them all, Jake! Send them all! LOL. But I like your last idea best ;-)

Enjoy searching for your best

I hope you got your work sent off and GOOD LUCK, Eleyne!

I'm not entering but maybe it'd be something I could aim to do next year :-)

That's a pity, because I'm sure you'd place! ;-)

Hey, Jen you've still got time to pull something together ;-) And I bet you've even got some ready to go!

I'm not entering, but thanks for asking. I think I'll aim to enter next year. Something to work towards.

hugs

I entered it last year and have received several letters/emails about this years contest from them but I didn't enter. I have enough trouble finding time to work on my WIP!
