Here’s the gist:
Do you feel like you have a red heart at this time of year, or a black heart? We want your poems, essays, and letters about love and heartbreak—your highest moments and your lowest. And we promise we won’t tell you how to feel about this very controversial holiday of the year. Just choose the most appropriate category of submission:
- Love Poem
- Black-Hearted Love Poem
- Love Letter
- Rejection Letter (and we don’t mean the editor/agent kind)
- Essay on Love at First Sight
- Essay on Love Lost
Winners and Prizes
The Writer’s Digest staff will choose the best entries from each of the six categories, and post them on the WritersDigest.com forum no later than February 10, 2008. The entry with the most votes on the forum by February 12, 2008, at 5 p.m., determines the contest winner.
The winner will receive a $250 shopping spree to the Writer’s Digest Store. Plus Writer’s Digest Publisher Jane Friedman will send the winner a Whitman’s Sampler with a personal, red-heart note of congratulations. The best entry in each category will receive a free 1-year subscription to WritersMarket.com and 50% off any course from WritersOnlineWorkshops.
