LA VINESS AWARDS

There will be awards… many awards. To win a La Viness Award, your work must have a good story line with a beginning, middle, and end. It must be well edited. It must be so interesting we'll remember it next year.

I have a collection of judges who help me select the winners of my contests. ALL my contests are judged blind, which means the judges never know who wrote the stories they are reading.

Currently, I am offering the following La Viness Awards:

.
#1. La Viness RWS Writing Contest, for those who attend the Read.Write.Share. Writers Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas in April.

#2. La Viness Award for Living Mystery, for those who enter contests at the Arkansas Writers Conference in Little Rock, Arkansas, in June.

#3. Junk Drawer Contest, for those who enter contests at the White County Creative Writers Conference.

#4. Middle Grade Fiction for Boys, which is open to all who attend the Ozark Creative Writers Conference in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, in October.

#5. La Viness Short Story Contest, for those interested in earning a few holiday dollars.
