Enter to Win Our First Writing Challenge!

Just two more days to send your ten lines of poetry or prose to our Author in Residence, Beth Kephart!

Here's a reminder of the challenge.

Submit your entry to Beth at kephartblog AT comcast DOT net by September 25, 2009 (that's Friday!). The author of the winning ten lines will receive a signed copy of UNDERCOVER, a novel about a young, aspiring poet who discovers the beauty that lives within her. It rules.

Think of this as your writing exercise for the week and have fun with it!

Beautiful, Beth! And so true. So painful to write, too, I think, from the places where one is vulnerable, which are often the places where one is wounded. But this is where the best writing comes from. Thank you!
