The April issue of The Cahaba Literary Journal will blossom into a beautiful butterfly about the last week of March 2015. Excitement is mounting at the editorial office and the editor and writers are patiently waiting the new birth of this beautiful magazine filled with essays, short stories, poetry and artwork. April can’t get here soon enough!
Since there is so much excitement in the air, I have decided to have an essay writing contest. Since April is such a beautiful time of year, I challenge each of you to a writing contest! Hold Up, Guys! There is a little catch! There is an entry fee of $15 — but! wait for it! There is also a prize to be given away too!
One lucky writer will get $100 and a $25 Olive Garden Gift Card on February 15th, 2015!
All essays must be about April – it can be about your cat named April, your wife, sister or your secret love! Or it can be about the month! As long as April is in your title! It can be about something that may have happened in your past in the month of April!
All essays must be typed, double spaced with your name, address and a short bio attached. All entries must be accompanied with a check or money order (or paid with PayPal) for emailed submissions for $15. Length of essays: 1000-3500 words. You may enter more than one essay but each one must be accompanied with entry fee.
No poetry with this contest – strictly essays!
Deadline for entries is February 1st, 2015. Entry Fee: $15.
All essays accepted will be published in a special magazine that will be published in March in an effort to promote the debut of The Cahaba River Literary Journal in April!
