Writing has never been so rewarding
October is almost half over and we’ve only gotten16 stories submitted for the Journalism Open.
We have roughly 15 prizes to give out, and we’d love to have a lot more content to judge for our writing contest.
That being said, we don’t want you overestimating the time and effort you need to put into writing an article for the Sacramento Press. We offer free copy editing, so don’t put off writing for the chance to win $500, a trip to Squaw Valley, and other prizes because you think your article needs to be Pulitzer-Prize worthy.
We’re having a workshop Tuesday, Oct. 13 to answer all of your questions about The Sacramento Press Journalism Open.
If you’ve been hesitant to enter or just heard about the contest from a friend, co-worker or from this article, this is the perfect opportunity to quell your misgivings.
We’re here to motivate, encourage and root you on as you write your first, second or thousandth article for this contest.
The Journalism Open only runs through 11:59 p.m. Oct. 31, which leaves a little over two weeks for you to write your story or stories.
To see the complete rules and prizes, visit www.sacramentopress.com/open.
Clear your Tuesday night schedule and come eat and socialize and prepare your A-game for the contest.
