Sorry guys this is one for the girls!
To all the budding travel writing women out there, Journey Woman, a great resource site for women travellers, has launched a travel writing contest looking for the most inspiring “women-centred” tales of determination and courage. They want to hear your stories of how you overcame either a personal or external struggle in order to make your journey a successful one.
Stories can be serious, comical or reflective – however you write best – just as long as you demonstrate that the journey was worth the effort. Entries must be no more than 500 words.
1st Prize: $100 (U.S.) + being published in their newsletter and website
4 Runners up: $25 (U.S.) each + being published in their newsletter and website
Deadline: March 15, 2008
