CALLING ALL BLOGGERS! ENTER TO WIN A LIFE – OR WRITING – COACHING SESSION!


Who doesn’t love a contest? I know I do, and haven’t held one outside of Alban Lake Publishing’s Drabble Contest for a while. Here are the particulars:

WHO: You, the writer. You, the insightful writer.  You, the insightful writer that despite having articles, novels, poems, stories et al rejected, continues to write – and submit!

WHAT: This free-to-enter contest is quite simple, really. All you need to do is follow the guidelines below.

WHEN: August 1 – 31, 2016

WHERE: Right here at my website. The winner – and winning article –  will be posted at the site.

WHY:  Because writing contests are fun – and you have a chance to win a coaching session – a $150.00 value – with YT! That’s why!

HOW: By submitting your entry (yes, just one) to info@terrieleighrelf.com.

 

The Guidelines

Given the “WHO” portion of the above particulars, you most likely intuited the basic theme for this contest: Rejection. But it’s not just about having your work rejected, declined, or a host of other verbs (some more euphemistic than others); it’s about how you handle that experience – and what you learn – as a result.

Or perhaps another way to think of it is this – How do you keep writing and submitting along with the rejections pilling up?!

So, now onto the specifics:

In a 300-700-word max “essay,” delve deep into your experience with the above – and yes, humor is welcome. When submitting, be sure to include the following in your subject line: Rejection Contest Submission/name/title.

Furthermore, when you submit your essay to info@terrieleighrelf.com, it is with the understanding that

1) The winning post will be published at this site for all the world to see;

2) There is no monetary compensation other than the prize of a life or writing coaching session;

3) The work you submit is your own; and

4) You retain the copyright, and are giving me, Terrie Leigh Relf, permission to post your work.

 

Questions? Please email me at info@terrieleighrelf.com and be sure to reference this contest in your subject line. I’m looking forward to your submissions!

Write on!
