Find Your Story Within Contest – Week 5

February 10, 2012

“The true gift of any book you read is that it illuminates your own life through someone else’s experience and imagination,” writes author Laura Oliver.

The challenge as an author is how to make those connections as you write; how to give your story depth. These connections must be fostered, not forced. One way to discover those emotional connections is to write about something concrete and physical listening for the metaphor.

In no more than 250 words, write about a person preparing a meal and let it stand for something else—duty, longing, generosity, exhaustion, boredom, love?

To enter, send an email to thestorywithinbook@gmail.com with your full name, email address and written entry. Week five entries are due on Wednesday, February 15, 2012.

To mark the halfway point of our contest, we are giving away an extra copy of The Story Within! The 10th person to enter week 5 will automatically win a copy.
