Come on people. I need a hero. I'm holding out for a hero til the end of the night - or until September 5th anyway.
The Literary Cottage Agency needs fifty stories for "My Teacher is My Hero," and the deadline is closing in. You have a teacher or mentor who deserves a tribute. You know you do. This is a great opportunity to get a story considered and get paid for your writing.
The Literary Cottage Agency needs stories about everyday heroes centering on following three themes:
Teachers or Mentors who are heroic, deadline extended to September 5, 2007
Mothers or mother figures who are heroic, deadline November 30, 2007
Fathers or father figures who are heroic, deadline February 28, 2008
The stories should be true and uplifting - similar to Chicken Soup or Cup of Comfort style. Each should be between 850-2000 words. You can find further guidelines and tips for writing a hero story on their website.
Payment is $100 and complimentary copy, with extra money prizes awarded to the top 3 stories in each book: 1st place is $250, 2nd place is $150, and 3rd place is $100.
