Creative Writing Contest: Win this $2000 Ring


This $2000 platinum and 1k yellow gold ring loves love. It was created to express undying love and it really wants to get back out into the world doing what it loves most. That’s where you come in. I’m not asking you to make me believe in romantic love again. I already believe. I just haven’t seen evidence of it for a long, long time. What I want you to do is to shore up my hope that romantic love can actually happen in this crazy world of heartbreak and dashed dreams. Tell me your story (or somebody else’s). Warm my heart. Make me laugh. Make me happy to cry. In return, one of you will get this $2000 platinum and 18k yellow gold men’s wedding band (size 10/11). The winner will receive the ring, the top three entries will be published on the blog for the Speak For Yourself Open Mic community (, and the top five writers will be invited to read from their work as special features for Speak For Yourself Open Mic in Provo, Utah (feature restricted to local writers or those who can pay for their own travel). There is no restriction on form other than that the entries must be no longer than 10 pages and should represent your own work. $19.99 entry fee. If the campaign earns more money than the ring is valued at, the two runner-up submissions will receive a cash prize.

This campaign is currently an open call but it is recommended that entries be submitted by May 30 or earlier.
