What an incredible week we’ve been having thanks to author Lea Schizas and her wonderful presenters at The Muse Conference! This is the online writing conference’s second year. It has been overwhelming – like swimming in an ocean of knowledge about writing, trying to pick up tips and ideas, here and there. I’ve met a lot of wonderful people, won one door prize (thanks, Hope Clark!), and tried to take in way more information than I really had time for.
About half-way through the week I decided to put off choosing the Writing Festival Friday (WFF) winner until Friday. That’s today. And the winner is: Mel Trent, from The Piker Press! I will get in touch with her for an interview within the next few hours.
How to be the next winner: It is easy… just leave a comment to this message, telling us about yourself and your writing. Leave links to your writing sites if you have any. What you might win is an opportunity to be interviewed here on Perspectives on Writing. I choose winners by random drawing, so you have as good a chance to win as anyone else, providing you leave a comment.
Things people have asked me about this contest:
Q – Do you have to be a published author?
A – No, anyone can participate so long as you write, will participate in an interview, and are willing for the interview to be posted here on Perspectives on Writing. It is a great promotional opportunity for published authors, but for unpublished authors, there’s no harm in working now to get your name out there, known to the world.
Q – If I’ve commented on another WFF, should I comment again?
A – Yes, because each week I choose a winner from only the names of commenters from the previous WFF posting.
If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask. I’ll post the interviews here as they arrive back in my email.
