Ladies’ Home Journal 2011 Personal Essay Contest Update

There is still time to enter the first ever Ladies’ Home Journal 2011 Personal Essay Contest.  Today is the deadline but you still have a few hours left!  Motivation!  I have already submitted mine, yea!!!

Here is the information:

from Ladies’ Home Journal

“Here at Ladies’ Home Journal, we have a long tradition (128 years’ worth) of telling the stories that matter most to women. Now we want to hear your story!

For the first-ever LHJ Personal Essay Contest, we’re looking for first-person narratives of personal growth — a term you can interpret as broadly as you like. Whether you choose to write about a life lesson you learned the hard way or a challenge you managed (or perhaps failed) to meet, no topic is off-limits. And you could win $3,000 and have your essay published in LHJ. Essays will be judged chiefly on their emotional power, their originality, and the quality of their prose.
