Is the $25 gift card per week?
Editted to clarify
Are you looking for more of a brief news article or would you like long ones too?
I could offer up my "poetry" as weekly news editorials :haha:
Excellent question - Brief is best, though don't let briefness sacrifice on quality :bleh:
Submissions definitely do not need to be long. 250 Words is more of an average. Your welcome to go over (though essay's aren't all that appealing), and free to go under but a word count of 150 is unlikely to showcase writing ability.
Amended the instructions to indicate 250 Average Word count
So... No "poetry" then eh? :bleh:
Do you do Ode's?
<del> FixT, his teeth are big and green, FixT, he smells like gasoline, FixT, ba-da-ba FixT, he is a ginger, I like to, kick gingers!</del>
I take it back - I just wish I was as awesome as FiXT :sad:
LMAO bad poetry gets you banned...watch out Chilly!
