Entice Us with a Life-Changing Moment

We’ve all had turning points that have changed our lives. Find a job? Quit a job? Find or quit a relationship? Have or lose a child? Win the lottery? Receive an inheritance? Lose your health? Regain your youthful body? All are life-changing moments. Please share yours in Writer Advice’s Flash Memoir Contest. We’ll respond to everyone who enters, telling you what works and identify whatever trips us up. You’ll get perspective and insight. Prizewinners will be published.

Grab our attention. Entice us. Make us want to know more.
Details, deadline, and a link to our Submittable page are at www.writeradvice.com. We can’t wait to read your work.
