Musings Contest: BLURB IT!
Do you have a story you think might intrigue me? Can you write a blurb that piques
my interest? Can you write a blurb that would make me want to pay some hard-earned cash to read more? If so, this contest
is for you!

story or novel, any genre of fiction. It must pertain to fiction that has been written, or is in the process of being written,

email to confirm receipt of your submission.
Mother Hen's Bin Contest
Ah! February! Valentine's Day! The month where relationships

at the end I wasn't expecting. BUT, make sure it centers either around Valentine's Day or a relationship.
no more than 1000 words. Go over and you're automatically
disqualified. Title does not count.
