Here’s calling all aspiring writers! I’m opening up a new Fiction section on Eco Chick, and I’m looking for entries.
The piece could be anywhere from 1500-7,000 words. The only guiding principles would be that it should have something to do with women and the environment, but that could be loosely interpreted. I’d love to post a new piece every season. I used to love the fiction sections in women’s magazines, which I’ve noticed have been slowly disappearing. I’d like to have an Eco Chick version of those sections and Summer is the perfect season to start!
Since fiction writers are usually rarely or barely paid (so sad) I am offering a little something for your trouble and creativity. I can only afford 30 bucks for the winning entry, but it’s something! And I will be happy to post your picture and bio along with your prose.
The piece would be introduced on the main page, and featured in its entirety on a page linked from the main one.
Email all entries to starre (at) eco-chick (dot) com by June 20, so I can have the winner up by the summer solstice. Please do not include attachments (other than the story itself) or images at this time. If you have any questions, post them in the comments section and then I won’t have to answer the same thing repeatedly.
