Future Winners Only–Read This Blog
It was quite a week: sad, scary and history-making. Paul Newman died, the country suffered the largest bank failure in U.S. history, Obama and McCain debated, and Americans—and their representation in Congress—split over a proposed financial bailout package. It’s Monday, and things don’t look a whole lot different. Americans are leaning slightly more toward Obama than they were last week. Uncertainty continues over a Presidential election that looks too close to call and an economy that might slowly come back but might also crash.
There’s no human wisdom that can answer the big questions all Americans are asking right now—so we won’t even try.
Instead, let us remind you that no one ever won $3000 in TMR’s Editor’s Prize Contest for a piece that wasn’t entered.
Life is short. You might die before next year’s contest, so enter this one. The deadline is fast approaching. Carpe diem. Don’t miss the boat. Don’t get left out. Don’t get left behind. You won’t get a more careful read anywhere than you’ll get from our contest readers and editors. Did I say $3000? And PUBLICATION in one of the nation’s top literary magazines?
Life is short. Enter now. Online or by mail—you choose. YOU have a great story (or essay, or group of poems). WE want to read it and reward you.
