AWAI Writing Challenge:
Tell Us About Your Best Summer Vacation
Here’s the latest AWAI Writing Challenge …
Tell me about your best summer vacation … using a story lead.
As Bill Bonner explains, "Stories are the way we understand the world around us. In sales letters, they are a very powerful way to draw your reader in."
Here's a fun way to practice your story-telling skills … and possibly earn $100 for a treat on your next vacation.
A few tips: A good story begins in the middle. It has a hero. The hero has a conflict. The conflict is resolved emotionally.
Send your 1,000-word (or less) essay to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with "My Best Summer Vacation" in the subject line.
One winner will be selected from all entries received. If it's you, you'll receive a $100 American Express gift card and have your essay published on the AWAI website.
Deadline: July 28, 2009
Look for the winning entry in the July 30th issue of Inside AWAI.
