Win A Free Vacation!

Okay so this has already been out for a week (that’s what I get for being on the road!)…..but the deadline i August 1st, 2008 so there’s still time for you to sharpen your pens and pencils (does anyone still use pens and pencils?)…..or warm up your typing muscles….. is sponsoring a Travel Writing Competition, and the lucky winner will receive a FREE vacation to Costa Rica valued at over $3,000! Best of all this one is NOT limited to “professionals” – anyone with a flair for prose can enter and have a shot at winning.

Be sure to read the Competition Rules & Guidelines before entering, and then get right on it!

The vacation itself sounds wonderful, even if it is limited to travel during September 2008 (toward the end of the rainy season), and is a great opportunity to improve your travel writing skills on someone else’s dime.

Good luck and happy writing!
