I’m ending 2009 with a great way to start 2010: The Highlights Fiction Contest!
With three (Yes, three!) prizes worth $1,000 each (Yes, $1,000!) AND no entry fee, it’s crazy not to give this contest a try. Which is why every year, between January 1 and 31st, I write a story and send it to the folks at Highlights.
I haven’t won this contest yet, but the stories I’ve written for the Highlights Fiction Contest have won in other children’s fiction contests. So, technically, that’s a win, right? Which is why I’m starting my year, thinking about family stories (the theme for this year’s contest). As the saying goes, I’ve got a million of ’em.
I just have to clean them up a bit for the kiddies!
