Maybe I could give you $325 instead, or even $375. 
You would never have to pay me back.

Seriously.

But you have to act now.  Deadline for this offer is 6pm July 4th.

My web site, Whyte Dove Press, is having a writing contest.  NO ENTRY FEE.  You can enter as many times as you want.  See www.whytedovepress.com for details.

First prize for an essay 750-1500 words is $100 and second prize is $35.  First prize for a story 750-1500 words is $100 and second prize is $35.  First prize poem is $40 and second is $15.  If you’re between 13-19 years old, you can compete in the Youth category and win $50 for an essay of 500-1000 words.  Children ages 12 and under can win $25 for an essay 250-500 words.

If you’re a beginning or lesser known writer, this could be your chance to get a published clip to attach to the next query you e-mail to a magazine editor or book agent.  If you’re the parent, aunt/uncle/ grandparent, brother/sister, friend of a young person who has writing aspirations, this is that young person’s big chance to see what it’s like to be published; we will publish every entry, winning or not, in the Youth and Children categories as a reward for the effort involved.    

Winning entries will be published on the Whyte Dove Press web site.  Non-winning entries of quality could be published on the site as well.  Publication on WDP is non-exclusive; so you can showcase your efforts elsewhere as long as WDP can post your entry, too, any time between August 2008 – February 2009.

Why not give it a try?  We’ve got to give the money away to somebody.  It may as well be you!
