Ruminate's Nonfiction Competition: Call for Entries

If you're wondering if you should submit to Ruminate's nonfiction competition, you should. Not only is it a good opportunity to learn about the submission and competition processes, there's also a nice cash prize to make the entry fee worthwhile.

The judge is Leslie Leyland Fields, a perennial guest of Festival of Faith and Writing.

Some further encouragement: Alissa Goudswaard came in last year in the top 8.  No reason why a Calvin student can't do even better this year. (Alissa's almost-winning essay has now been published, as noted in a recent blog post.)

 Below is the information and details:

We'd be so grateful if you could share this call for entries for Ruminate's upcoming nonfiction contest--perhaps posting it in your department newsletter and/or sharing it with students and colleagues.
Thank you for any time or attention you can give to this.
