5 New Resources for Writers

The Big Brick Review – Essay Contest, deadline Feb 17

“The Big Brick Review is a nonfiction online journal that seeks personal essays which build on the narrative of our lives, finding new insight to old struggles…old insight to new struggles…and all shades-of-gray in between. Now accepting submissions for the second annual essay contest; judges include award winning authors Georgia Beers, Susan Bono, Sejal Shah, and Alison Smith. For 2016, the contest theme is loosely based on the concept of ‘red’ or ‘read’. Creative interpretation welcomed. Essays must be narrative non-fiction (that is, they must explore a truth of a human experience as interpreted/experienced by the author) and will be judged on overall strength of writing, compelling content/theme, and interesting style/voice. Maximum length 2000 words. Read last year’s winning essays to see what we like. Deadline for contest submission is Feb 17, 2016. Visit Essay Contest online for more details at: http://www.bigbrickreview.com/contest.html.”
