Writer’s Contest for LDS Women

For those of you who may be interested and fit the parameters:

Segullah: Writings by Latter-day Saint Women is pleased to announce its annual writing competitions in the genres of personal essay, poetry, and fiction. Segullah welcomes unpublished entries which address any subject in harmony with its mission: to publish insightful writings which explore life’s richness and complexity while reflecting faithfulness to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Entrants must be female members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Entries will be judged by Segullah editors. Winners in each category will be awarded $100. Deadline is December 31, 2010. For more information, visit http://journal.segullah.org/contests/.

By the way, Segullah also puts on a terrific one-day writer’s conference each spring in the Salt Lake area. I attended last year and found the presentation on essays particularly enlightening.

    • Think back to your high school days (it helps if you have a high school age child, as I do, who is constantly asking for my help with his essays). I have been meaning to post what I learned about essays in that presentation on my other blog. When I do, I’ll certainly let you know about it. In the meantime, check out the essays of Brian Doyle…some of the most beautiful and powerful I’ve ever read.
