New Writers' Exchange contest
"Writing is serious business. But funny things do happen. We all make silly mistakes, some more humiliating than others. At the time, your blunder probably seemed unbearably embarrassing, but looking back on it ... it was pretty funny."
The magazine is looking for your favorite faux pas from your writing career. Send your story in by May 31, 2008. Word count: 50 to 250 words. The most entertaining entries will be published in a future issue of The Writer and/or online at WriterMag.com. If your piece is published, you will receive $50 and a year's subscription to The Writer.
