Annual Ladies' Home Journal personal essay contest — now in its third year!
This year's theme is "The Best Decision I Ever Made," and we're calling for genuine, original essays to be entered between now and. The winner of our contest will receive $3,000 and the chance to have his/her essay published in Ladies' Home Journal (we reach 10 million women each month!), and work with one of our senior editors on it. In fact, every story is read by an editorial staffer as we judge the entries, and we've published entries that didn't win the contest as well (and paid the writers, of course).
All info about the contest, including instructions for entry can be found here.
