Song of the Day: Shine by Laura Izibor
1. Spring Blog Carnival- Books, Books, and MORE Books!
This contest involves a huge book giveaway! Over 170 blogs are giving away free books! Instead of listing all the blogs, I'll just give a link to Julie A. Lindsay's blog and you can find the list there. Each blogger may require something different, but I did visit a few where all you have to do is leave your name and contact info and you're entered. What could be easier?
2. Cheerios New Author Contest
Cheerios is hosting a contest open to new writers only. The grand prize winner will receive $5,000 and a possible publishing deal with Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing, in addition to having their book featured in Cheerios cereal boxes nationwide. Entrants must write an original story in English or Spanish, suitable for children ages 3-8 years old. Contest Deadline is July 15, 2011. I didn't see an entry fee so I'm assuming it's free to enter.
3. Lost Horse Press- Idaho Prize for Poetry
A prize of $1,000 and publication by Lost Horse Press is given annually for a poetry collection by a U.S. poet. Manuscripts should be at least 48 pages. Entry fee is $25 and the contest deadline is May 15, 2011.
Calls for Submissions:
1. 34th Parallel is accepting submissions of stories (fiction and documentary), poems, photographs, and art.
