Blue Mountain Arts Contest & Calls for Submissions!

How would you like to see your brilliant, creative writing on a Blue Mountain Arts greeting card?! (Hopefully everyone is very familiar with these delightful cards!)


I just heard they are still in need of Christmas card submissions. The deadline is coming up soon: JULY 15th, but that still gives you time to submit your best work. Wouldn't it be incredible to be one of their writers?
  


~~~~~


Blue Mountain Arts is also having its Twentieth Biannual Poetry Card Contest. Be sure to read the contest guidelines before you submit. I'd also recommend reading some of the previous winners to get an idea of what they're looking for. Another fast approaching deadline: JUNE 30th

                   NO ENTRY FEE. ENTER AS OFTEN AS YOU LIKE.

Prize money: 1st Place - $300      2nd Place - $150       3rd Place - $50






"Everybody walks past a thousand story ideas every day. The good writers are the ones who see five or six of them. Most people don't see any." - Orson Scott Card

  2. One thing I have never yet done in my life of 37 years is enter a writing contest. I came pretty close once to writing a short story.....it got put into an envelope and was never actually mailed out! On purpose. I haven't even taken the leap to submitting my blog or any of my creation into Stampington magazines......maybe some day.


    Thanks so much for visiting with me Becky.
    Ciao Bella

    Hi Nancy! I've loved their cards, too, ever since they first came out! Wouldn't that be wonderful to see your writing on one of them? Or win the poetry contest?!

  9. I'd forgotten all about Blue Mountain Arts. They purchased a poem of mine once, many years ago.

  15. Oh my gosh, Sue....I somehow missed commenting on your comment! I'm so sorry! And you have such awesome news to share! I remember reading info on your blog somewhere, that you had a poem printed by Blue Mountain Arts! You definitely should submit something to their contest and/or greeting cards!!
