A call for young writers submissions

cj Sez: Hey, all you young writers (and teachers of same) in Mobile and Baldwin, Alabama, counties, the Mobile Writers Guild wants your stories.

  The Mobile Writers Guild is sponsoring a Writing Scholarship contest calling for submissions of short story fiction by students in grades 6 through 12 in Mobile and Baldwin Alabama counties.

   Write your story, edit and re-edit, get it proofread (the more eyes on it, the better), polish it some more, and submit the manuscript by February 26 for a chance to get some professional feedback and win a cash prize. (Be sure to follow all the instructions.)


   On January 21, the Dauphin Island “People’s Parade,” the first of two weekends of parades on the Island, kicks off the 2023 Mardi Gras Season for Mobile, Alabama. The first parade for the City of Mobile will roll through the downtown streets on February 3. In case you didn’t know, Mardi Gras 2023, the actual day, also known as Fat Tuesday and/or Shrove Tuesday, is February 21. I checked the current schedule and counted forty-seven parades scheduled to celebrate the 2023 season. But wait, there’s more!

   Valentine’s Day is next on the list of February celebrations. 

   Soooo, here are a couple of Mobile Writers Guild anthologies, chock full of a variety of short stories about these popular holidays to get you in the swing of things. And the Ebooks are sale-priced, too!


   That’s it for today’s post. You-all guys keep on keeping on, and I’ll try to do the same. Raising prayers for your health and safety.


   No inflation here: THE DAWGSTAR and DEATH ON THE YAMPA, my fast-paced, exciting suspense/thriller ebooks, are low-, low-priced at $2.99.
