Press Release: Writing Contest
New Dazzling Dogs Writing Contest Lets Writers Tell Their Best Dog Stories
Authors Can Enter to Win Software and Publication in New Book
SANDPOINT, Idaho — Whether they want to create a “shaggy dog story” or just a heartwarming tale, writers have a new opportunity to tell the world about their favorite dogs, thanks to a new writing contest from Logical Expressions, Inc. Dogs can be silly, inspiring, goofy, loyal, heartwarming, and fun, and almost all dog lovers have a story to tell about their favorite canine.
The contest is being held in honor of Freelance Writers week, but it is open to professional and amateur writers, freelance or not. Essays can be about “bad” dogs like Marley (of “Marley and Me” fame), heroic like Lassie, or just a great “best friend” story. Entrants are eligible to win free writing software and the opportunity to be published in a book.
Book authors and publishers Susan Daffron and James Byrd of Logical Expressions, Inc. will select approximately 20 winners from the entries received. Authors of the selected stories receive a free license for Logical Expressions IdeaWeaver writing software (a $50 value) and a free copy of the book of dog stories when it is published.
Like other pet books from Logical Expressions (Happy Hound and Happy Tabby), the book of essays will be offered to animal shelters and humane groups at a discount for use as a fundraising tool. One story will also be selected as a Grand Prize winner. This author receives the other prizes, a $50 Grand Prize, and will be written up as a case study on the IdeaWeaver Web site with a link back to the author’s site (if available).
Although the contest does not have an entry fee, participants must download the free trial of IdeaWeaver and follow the instructions on the contest page to enter. Entries must be 800-1500 words and received by March 31, 2008.
“IdeaWeaver” is free to try for 30 days. A license costs $49.95. The free trial download of the software is available at: www.IdeaWeaverSoftware.com. The site features a free “getting started” video, case studies, and a free e-course called “Get Unstuck! 15 Ways to Jumpstart Your Creativity, Get Organized, and Finish Your Writing Project.” Click the Writing Contest link for the Dazzling Dogs contest entry instructions and rules.
