Real Simple magazine--one of my all time favorite magazines--is hosting their first-ever Life Lessons essay contest.
The guidelines are pretty simple: Whatever the memory of the most important day of your life is, share it. Other than that, stick to a 1500 word count and then e-mail your entries to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here's your chance to be published in Real Simple and win $3,000.
Deadline: Online entries must be received by 11:59 PM on Sept. 9, 2008. Mailed entries must be postmarked by Sept. 9, 2008 and received by Sept. 16, 2008.
