Enter for a chance to win a Moleskine Classic, Extra Large notebook
So let’s celebrate with our first essay writing contest. We all have a story to tell, we come from all walks of life, but our common thread is the love of word-spinning. I’ve been not-so-subtly hinting for a while that our first contest would revolve around why we write. With that in mind, here’s the contest info:
What: In your best, most succinct writing – and in 100 words or less – tell us why you write. Dig deep. Why do you continue to put pen to page and what mark, through your craft, do you hope to make on the world?
How: Drop your paragraph in the comments below. I’ve also added a link-up option for those of you who’d rather publish your 100 words on your own blog and then link to them.
When: You have until 5:00 p.m. EST on Friday, April 26 to enter. That gives me the weekend to read entries and select the winner.
The Moleskine Classic Extra Large Soft Cover Ruled Journal has a soft, pliable cover that offers a flexible version of the traditional hard cover notebooks. The most reliable travel, home, or work companion for your drafts, thoughts, sketches, notes … destined to become your analog laptop, your library, your home away from home.
Entries will be judged on writing mechanics (grammar, punctuation, etc.) originality and creativity. The winner will be announced on Monday, April 29 at about 9:00 a.m. EST.
So start writing! This is our first contest so, while I have the basics covered, I’m still sort of finding my way. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me directly at juliaannweston(at)gmail(dot)com. For contest rules, see our official Contest and Giveaway Rules page. The one thing I would point out is that, at least for now, these contests are limited to residents of the U.S and Canada.
Good luck, and happy writing!
(Oh, and to keep the FTC happy, the fine print: I did not receive any compensation to host this contest; the prize is sponsored by me.)
