Valentine’s Writing Contest — $150 in prizes
By Oregon Women’s Report

3 Prizes:  $50, $35 & $25.
Student Prize: $40
Previously written, published & blogged material gladly accepted.

Oregon Women’s Report is hosting our second annual Valentine’s Day writing contest with three $50.00 cash prizes for the three top winners. The contest theme is “love” and covers a wide spectrum of ideas from family, kids, relationships, advice, romance to friendships. Articles can be about life lessons, memorable family moments, acts of kindness, friendship, calls to community service and other love related topics. Original or previous written material is accepted. Poetry is also accepted.

Now is the time to dust of that great article you never submitted , re-open your old college creative writing papers or peek at that journal entry that recorded an important life moment perfectly. Turn your thoughts into something that can be seen and appreciated by others while earning $50.00 to splurge on whatever you wish. Most of all, you will have fun expressing yourself. If you are already a local author and/or blogger, we will promote your blog, book or website if your article is chosen. Good luck!

Word Count Limit: Under 400 words (suggested).

Deadline: Feb 6th, 2013

Requirements: Author must live in Oregon.

Why you could win: This is not a distant and impersonal national writing contest with 10,000 submissions. This is a local opportunity just among us women in Oregon.  We typically receive 30-40 submissions  in our contests — so this is the type of contest you have a great chance to win.

Free promotion of your work: For authors and bloggers we will gladly link and promote your website and your books.
