Not a writer? Worried about your spelling and grammar? Don’t be! I personally edit all submissions, so your memoir will be perfect.

I will be submitting a piece about a Special Person before the November deadline. Can I send a picture after the entry is accepted?
Yes, of course! We welcome pictures as well as writing. Please be sure your image is at least 200 dpi.
Sorry, clicked SEND too soon:
Thanks for this great opportunity,
Can we submit excerpts from published work. I’d love to submit a chapter from my book, “Truth Be Told: Adam Becomes Audrey.”
Please let me know.
Yes, as long as the entry is 2000 words (more or less), and you specify where and when it was published. 🙂
Excellent. I will send my submission shortly.
Thank you for this wonderful opportunity.
I have made a mental note of this I definitely would like to submit a piece 🙂
If I submit something, and it is used, but I want to include it in a future book, can I? Who owns the rights? Please clarify this! Thank you!
See the update in the post above, Lorraine. 🙂
