Good Luck and let me know if you win.



  1. Thanks for this, Kathy 🙂 I have a short story I could submit. It won an Honorable Mention in Writer’s Digest, but maybe it has the chance to fair better in this one, especially considering the subject matter is geared toward women rather than being wide-open as it was in Writer’s Digest. I especially love that it’s FREE!!!!!!! lol


  2. This is what I was hoping for… someone who has something already written that they could submit. Since it doesn’t cost anything, I hope you follow thru and send it in. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you win $600.
