A friend shared this writing contest with me and now I'm sharing it with anyone interested.

Any family-friendly subject is welcome, and the guidelines are simple:

And for all the details and guidelines, y'all head on over to: http://www.southernwritersmagazine.com/contest.html

  2. Oooh, I think I need a tall glass of sweetend tea, or a mint julep! Thanks, Lynn!

  3. Thanks for sharing, Lynn. You've now heaped yet another thing onto my plate. ;)

  4. Thanks for posting, Lynn. Bought some pink paper WITH LINES and will scribble you a note soon. :)
