Two emails recently came through my inbox about writing contests that are under way and that carry monetary prizes. I don’t know if these are legitimate, and I’m not endorsing them, but I wanted to share with my readers so that you had the opportunity to check them out. If you have any feedback about them, please post in the comments below. Without further ado, here are the details.
Shame Kills and Swift River are sponsoring a spring essay contest titled, “My Mother, My Hero.”
Shame Kills is dedicated to eradicating the stigma associated with substance abuse disorder.
This contest is free and the winning essay receives a $200 cash prize. http://www.swiftriver.com/my-mother-my-hero/
