Creative Writing Contest II

Posted by on June 1, 2014

Calling all writerly types! (And for those who aren’t, this will be something to put on our to-read list.)

I don’t normally post on the weekend, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share with you all Anne Elisabeth Stengl’s Creative Writing Contest and cover reveal. Some of you might remember from last year, Ms. Stengl’s first contest with the Five Glass Slippers. Which, by the way, is available for pre-order5glassslippers GrabButtonforContest

And now for contest number two…and cover reveal:

Rooglewood Press is delighted to introduce their second fairy tale novella contest—

Five Enchanted Roses

a collection of “Beauty and the Beast” stories

EnchantedRosesCover (518x800)

This cover illustration was rendered by Julia Popova, “ForestGirl.” You can find out more about this gifted artist on her website:

The challenge is to write a retelling of the beloved fairy tale in any genre or setting you like. Make certain your story is recognizably “Beauty and the Beast,” but have fun with it as well. Make it yours!

Rooglewood Press will be selecting five winners to be published in the Five Enchanted Roses collection, which will be packaged up with the gorgeous cover you see displayed here. Perhaps your name will be one of the five displayed on this cover?

All the contest rules and information (how to enter, story details, deadline etc.) may be found on the Rooglewood Press website. Just click HERE and you will go right to the page.

Rooglewood Press’s first collection, Five Glass Slippers, is available for pre-order now and will be released on June 14. Do grab yourself a copy and see what these talented writers have done with the timeless “Cinderella” tale!





So, will you enter? Isn’t that cover gorgeous?
