|Ladies' Home Journal Essay Contest 2013
I'm in the middle of writing my own entry for a fun personal essay contest via Ladies’ Home Journal, and I thought, as a member of the writing community, my readers might want to hear a little bit more about it too!
This year's theme is "The Best Decision I Ever Made," and the contest is calling for genuine, original essays to be entered through December 6, 2013. The winner of the contest will receive $3,000 and the chance to have his/her essay published in Ladies' Home Journal (the publication reaches 10 million women each month!), and work with one of the senior editors on it. In fact (and here's why this is such a uniquely wonderful opportunity), every story is read by an editorial staffer as they judge the entries, and they have published entries that didn't win the contest as well (and paid the writers, of course).
