Writing Opportunities!

I just thought I'd just share the following CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS with aspiring writers in blogland. Winning contests and getting published in anthologies are a great way to get your foot in the door when it comes to the publishing industry. Not only that, but whether accepted or not, in theory, the more you write, the better you'll get!

As with anything, before making a submission, please make sure you do your homework first! I wish you all Good Luck -- Happy Writing!


What I Know for Sure: Me Too Moments from Tavis Smiley will be a compilation of short stories from every day people, celebrities, entrepreneurs and famous people who share their experiences of success, failure and courage, with a little helpful advice mixed in. Click here to get submission info.
