Saw a link on Twitter for this Requiem contest for writers 13-21 years of age, sponsored by Figment and HarperCollins. My daughter is almost fifteen and might be interested. Grand prize is a trip to New York and a day at HarperCollins, as well as an unpaid writing position as a columnist for Teen.com, to write at least 12 columns.
Here's a link: http://dailyfig.figment.com/requiem-contest-rules/
I'd love some opinions on whether this is a worthwhile contest to enter. Here is a paragraph from the link above, of the rules, which gave me pause.
