December 7th

Hi everyone! My apologies for missing yesterday’s submission post. Today, I have two opportunities to make up for the missed blog from yesterday.

Chicken Soup for the Soul is publishing stories about Running/Walking. They are due December 15th. 

Blue Mountain Arts seek poems for a poetry card contest due December 31st.

Keep reading to learn more about both!

Running for Good – and Walking Too!

Chicken Soup for the Soul is teaming up with Dean Karnazes. He is the Ultramarathoner. This book will be about walking, running, and how steps toward taking care of the body have many benefits.

Guidelines

The upcoming book title refers to how running and walking are good for one’s health. You can also run or walk for an important cause or issue, to raise awareness.

They seek true poems or stories of 1200 words or less. It can be about all aspects of running, walking, and raising awareness for a cause. Stories can be serious, heartwarming, or funny and quirky.

Read more about potential topics here! You can submit your story here. Remember, stories are due December 15th.

Blue Mountain Arts Poetry Card Contest

Guidelines

Poems can be non-rhyming or rhyming. Blue Mountain Arts noted that non-rhyming poems read better. They suggest writing about real feelings or emotions and think about a particular person while you write.
