Attention Memoir and Narrative Non-Fiction Writers
CONTEST! Okay, I don't normally post on Sunday. And I don't normally shout out contests. But I am entering this one and part of the deal is that you post it to your blog. So, if you are not a writer of memoir or Non-fiction I understand if you click away at this point. I'll see you Monday? :)
For everyone else: Win a free critique of the first 25 pages of your memoir or work of Narrative non-fiction.
