The contest is open for June 2020 on Instagram!
Here are details on how to enter:
This contest series is designed to showcase and celebrate what it means to be a writer. We each have an important job to do, a message to convey, a change to make in this world. We are 𝐁𝐎𝐋𝐃.
For JUNE 2020, we're celebrating ...
*** WRITING SPACES ***
We all need a little corner of the universe, a physical space to say, “𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴 is where I will tell my story.”
Have you created such a space? It can be large or small. Permanent or makeshift. Stationary or mobile. An entire home office or a folding table on your patio. A shared space or a just-for-you space. Fancy or simple. 𝘕𝘰𝘸 is your time to shine!
All this month, you can post your entry, but take your time and #CraftYourStory. Deadline to enter is June 30, 2020 @11:59 EST.
This contest is open to ALL WRITERS, anywhere in the world, who are 𝐁𝐎𝐋𝐃-ly working on a book project in English (fiction, memoir, or nonfiction), who intend to publish and inspire readers for generations to come.

c) 𝐂𝐋𝐎𝐒𝐄-𝐔𝐏 𝐒𝐇𝐎𝐓 of your 𝐁𝐎𝐋𝐃-est piece of writing flair, like your lucky pen, your worn copy of your favorite book, a cool gadget that helps you write, or a piece of artwork.
