Say It With Hallmark!
Do you ever browse through greeting cards and think, “I can do better than this.” ? Well, now is your chance to prove it. Hallmark is hosting a contest that can net you $250 big ones if your card is chosen to sell at Hallmark.com. If they think it really rocks and opt to sell it in stores, you earn another $250. There is no fee to enter, but you have to submit by September 26. Winners will be announced in November. Good luck!
Another worthwhile contest is found at Creative Writer’s Circle. They provide your writing prompt in the form of paragraph one of your story. That’s right, the whole first paragraph is already written. Your job is to finish the story, keeping it to a maximum of 3,500 words. The submission deadline is September 31. First place wins $50 cash, plus one dozen of Leah’s Homemade Cookies (you choose your favorite) shipped directly to you. Second place wins $25 plus the cookies. There is no fee to enter.
For more writing contests, check out Once Written. This site offers a list of contests, all of which offer either a minimum grand prize of $250 or no entry fee. If you love to write and enjoy contests, you may find one that suits you.
Even if you don’t consider yourself a writer, you ought to give one of these contests a try, buttercup. It will be fun (I promise) and you may discover a creative talent you never knew you possessed. Make it a Hallmark moment—go for it!
