LA VINESS AWARDS
There will be awards… many awards. To win a La Viness Award, your work must have a good story line with a beginning, middle, and end. It must be well edited. It must be interesting.
Currently, I am offering the following La Viness Awards:
#1. Middle Grade Fiction for Boys contest, which is open to all who attend the Ozark Creative Writers Conference in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, in October.
#2. La Viness Award for Living Mystery, for those who enter contests at the Arkansas Writers’ Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas, in June.
#3. La Viness Read.Write.Share! Contest, for those who attend the Read.Write.Share! Retreat in Little Rock, Arkansas in April.
#4. La Viness Short Story Writing Contest, for those interested in earning a few holiday dollars. The website is at www.jespiddlin.com/writingcontest and has totally anonymous submission rules.
