BE Entertainment & Productions: Writing Contest for Women
Thanks to the holiday, Wednesday came fast this week. Also thanks to the holiday, I’ve got my days all messed up; it feels like today should be Tuesday. That is one reason my post is a short one today. The second reason is that my big sis is coming to visit and I’m busy putting sheets on the guest bed and making potato salad.
In between tucking linens and chopping onions I found a contest that I want to share with my lady writer friends. (Sorry gentlemen, you’ll have to sit this one out.) The contest is hosted by BE Entertainment & Productions and the deadline for submissions is September 15th. Below is the submission information. Click HERE to go to their webpage for the full scoop.
“BE Entertainment & Productions with its owner, Bianca Emery, is teaming up with 2011 Ms. New Orleans Plus America & Columnist, Trella Woodfork, to conduct “The Dynamics of a Woman” Women’s Writer’s Contest. We are looking for Short Stories & Poems about women displaying one or more of the following: Inspiration, Strength, Confidence, and Determination.Entry Fee: $5 for Poems & $10 for Short StoriesCash Prizes: $150 for the Poem & $250 for the Short StoryThe Winners will also be featured in our Upcoming Publication as well as Interviewed on our Blog Talk Radio Show.Contest Ends September 15, 2011.
A portion of the proceeds from the contest will go towards The Reading Partners Program, which focuses on children from low-income communities who are struggling with reading.”
Ladies, start your writing engines! The entry fees are not unreasonable (and a portion will be donated to a good cause), and a win will bring a return on your money plus a little publicity for your talent, and that is always a good thing. As always, even if you don’t win, you’ll still have a great story that may find a home somewhere else. Good luck!
See you next for Book Blurb Friday!
