Independence Day Writing

Happy Fourth of July! I found two writing opportunities for you. I'll be spending the next four days with family and friends - hopefully I'll squeeze in a little writing time as well.

TRIBUTE TO OUR SOLDIERS ESSAY CONTEST - Deadline July 4, 2013. Salute the soldiers by submitting a 200-word “Tribute to Our Troops” essay for the chance to win a beautiful Speidel timepiece. Twenty winning essays will be selected by our editors and posted on saturdayeveningpost.com, and winners will receive a Women’s Tortoise Shell Fashion Watch or Men's Pilot Watch. Speidel is donating a portion of its sales to American military and their families in partnership with Operation Homefront. https://apps.facebook.com/easypromos/promotions/79941
