A couple of months ago I entered a writing contest put on by The Momoir Project and ParentsCanada magazine. I struggled to write my piece, but did so, entered it, and then promptly assumed I would not be a winner.
Well I am not THE winner, but am very proud to be one of the 3 runners up! There were over 50 essays entered and a panel of 5 judges. My piece will be published on the ParentsCanada and Momoir Project websites in the fall, plus I received a visa gift card! Woo hoo! First paid writing - I will buy myself something nice to commemorate!
You can read the announcement on the Momoir Project here - haven't seen it on ParentsCanada yet...but you know I'll keep looking!
