April's Announcements...

Happy Sunday!
It's been a busy week with lots of juggling and the promise of better weather here in the Midwest.
How about you?
In the midst of the hustle and bustle, I'd like to take this time to share a few things of potential interest to you, as you move forward in your week.

I also welcome you to join me in posting any events, success stories, and items of interest in the comments section.

HERE'S THE 4-1-1- FOR TODAY:

  • Bryan Hutchinson, over at PositiveWriter.com, is sponsoring a fun contest at his spot on Overcoming Writer's Doubt. Great topic, right? No entry fee is required, and winners will receive Amazon Gift Cards up to $100.00 for their entries. For more details, see: http://positivewriter.com/writing-contest-doubt/
  •  Sarah Webb, over at Colorism Healing.org is sponsoring a poetry contest for April on Colorism. Win up to $250.00 and publication on her site. Additional contest info found here: http://colorismhealing.org/colorism-poetry-contest-submissions-u-s-edition/
  • A special thanks to Elizabeth Spann Craig, who featured one of my guest posts on her award-winning site. Just in case you missed it, (Think like an editor, sell like a pro), check it out here: http://elizabethspanncraig.com/1950/freelance-writing-think-like-editor-sell-like-pro/
  • April is National Poetry Month and National Jazz Awareness Month. If you have poems, essays, or creative pieces you'd like featured at Pen & Prosper, I'd love to hear from you.
  • Congrats to my blogging buddy Karen E. Lange, who is celebrating her 5th year Blogoversary, and who has been kind enough to accept one of my guest posts, slated to run tomorrow. Please stop over and say hello, here: http://karenelange.blogspot.com/
  • A special thanks to Marcie Hill, for inclusion in her "15 Most Powerful Women" recognition.
  • Jen will be "out of the building." Pen and Prosper will be on a short vacation break starting April 14th, ending April 28th. Check back in at that time for more guest posts, great ways to blog better and take-away tips to build your bottom line.

Have a great week with loads of writing progress!

Jen
